Enlightening and Inspiring...
"Here!?!?!? How can we have anyone with food insecurity HERE?!?!" or "How can someone facing food insecurity AFFORD to live anywhere near here?!?!?" This was the most common reaction to the news that Alex and I were beginning to volunteer at Hope's Corner in downtown Mountain View. We took the time to share the reality of food insecurity with everyone who would listen. We have worked only a few times in the last year and a half, but the effort and meaning behind Hope's Corner is always going to be with us.
In Remembrance of Edward Lee Hamm
Edward was a long-time client at Hope’s Corner, often coming to eat, carrying his Stanford Continuation Studies book. He was born in Marion, South Carolina and as a young child moved to Harlem, in New York City. He was an enigma until we became friends.
