Saturday, Oct. 2
We had a hairy few minutes this week when a fist-fight broke out near us. One person spotted another who owed him money and things went south quickly. One of the two left the area quickly but the other was still lingering nearby so I decided it was time to pack up and go. This is the first incident we’ve had in a year of serving. It was a good reminder that as comfortable as I have begun to feel in this spot, it’s not our neighborhood. We also discussed what to do if anything like this happens again (drop everything and go straight to our cars).
Despite the moment of chaos toward the end, we had a good, busy day. Volunteer Jill Yesko was back so we have some great pictures to share once again. And we were thrilled to be joined by Carol Bernstein, founder of First Fruits Farm, Inc. who has been donating produce, eggs, and pork to us over the last year. I always enjoy going up to Parkton to visit Carol's farm and collect fresh produce and eggs, and was thrilled to have Carol on the ground with us this week in turn.
Stats: 75+ baked ziti, 50 bag lunches, 5 bunches of bananas, 5 bags of clementines, 5 gallons mango iced tea, and 80 water bottles, 70 hand sanitizers and so.many.masks.
