After the meal winter coats and a variety of gifts were provided to those in attendance. A massage therapist was also on hand to alleviate some stress.
On a personal note, I visited with one of the men in attendance. He had moved from Memphis, Tennessee to Minneapolis just within the past year and a half. He share something of his life story of being in prison for 20 years. Despite the cold Minnesota winters was extremely thankful for the quality social service system in Minnesota that has supported him in transitional housing. He was most pleasant to visit with, and now is serving as a minister to others. He hadn't eaten anything all day in anticipation of this special meal. I was glad to see he wasn't disappointed.
