I could tell they were really having a good time together and it made me so happy. It was a reminder that our free weekly meal at Trinity Episcopal Cathedral is about so much more than just the food — though we did serve roasted pork, enchiladas and Key Lime bars for dessert!

When you are homeless, it's nearly impossible to find a place of joy, a place where you are welcome to stay.
Think about it, if you had no home, where could you go and not be told to leave?
It's a problem in our community and elsewhere that needs addressing. Those without a home, they are real people, not statistics, and they need our care and attention.
I know the Wednesday Community Meal is just a once a week band-aid for a much larger problem but it at least helps. The meal is a place for everyone.
We served 437 meals today and everyone who came to our door was greeted, seated and treated with kindness and respect.
