Food for Thought

This weekend I traveled to downtown Toledo for Food for Thought. This an organization that is growing at a rapid pace.  There are many in need and many there to help.I was struck by how different homeless and volunteers look with out all the winter attire on. It was a beautiful day and we all looked renewed.

There was a box truck filled to the brim with Gatorade, orange juice and water bottles. The volunteers were handing them one by one until they realized they needed to empty the truck. I heard someone say “let’s give out cases and we can get it emptied faster”.  Then came the mad dash for the drink truck, people had more then they could carry.

I understand the individual who donated was lead to give to those who were less fortunate, which was so wonderful.  I know that those for were given appreciated the given.
