Chapter 10 Seeing More

After seeing her vision of having a food pantry at St. Gregory's, Sara Miles starts to learn about what it would take to start one. She talks to the people at the San Francisco Second Harvest Food Bank. Her contact there gives her some good advice: 

""You know," Anne told me, "well-fed people like to say, 'Oh, if you're hungry enough, you'll eat anything.' That's probably true, at some point. But it's not good for people. It's wrong."" (106)

"Provide a range of healthy groceries, let people choose what they want, allow them to cook their own meals: It was a simple and empowering idea." (106)

Not only does this way of giving food to other people allow them to eat, it also gives them more power over their lives.
