    Some other ideas for local visits: visiting Sanctuary or Next Door shelters (run by Episcopal Community Services), checking out one of the local food pantries, waiting in one of the shelter reservations lines, checking out St. Anthony’s meals program, looking at the grocery/food programs offered by Project Open Hands, going to one of the smaller meals providers (I can send a list/schedule if that would be helpful), learning more about the SRO’s in the TL.
