This story made the national news tonight on NBC, and I find it very touching. In spite of our radical side, we really do want to help in the long run! Thanks, Kat.

BTW: THERE IS STILL MUCH TO DO!!! This year there thousands of families who are not eligible for food bank service, yet now have much less money than they'd had with jobs.
