After spending over 5 hours on-the-road, we pulled off Interstate 10 early this evening and stopped at a red light. We were in the far left turning lane. Just a couple of feet from my window was a man holding a piece of cardboard that read, "Broke and Hungry."
The light turned green. I was about to let off the brakes and go when Stephanie handed me our nearly full bag of cashew clusters from Costco. "Should we give these to him?" she said.
I stuck the clusters out the window and asked, "Would you like these?" The man quickly took them. He looked at them and said, "All right!"
It all happened quickly and then we were gone.
How do you respond to homelessness and hunger in your community?
