“Its the right thing to do, if you’re fortunate that you’ve eaten today, if you’re fortunate to have a roof over your head, then its appropriate to give back,” says Ulysses Campbell.  He’s has been volunteering to help the poor for seven years now.  I met him on Friday while he was serving hot soup out of a lunch wagon to the homeless.

Martha’s Table offers long term and immediate help to those in poverty such as job training and clothing.  Campbell as well as more than 10,000 people a year join Martha’s Table with their church groups to help out.  McKenna’s wagon, the mobile soup kitchen delivers hot meals, sandwiches, and desserts to the needy everyday.

I said hello to a couple of people I remember from the service dinner at the Church of Epiphany.  They remembered me and asked how the blog was coming along.  One of the guys told me he saw our site and liked the work we were doing.  “So many of us are forgotten in the system, its an everyday struggle.”  He didn’t want his name put in the story.
