Food Shelf, Long Lines

There were long lines, and long waiting.  Many in line were in pain in their feet, legs, back, etc.  But to get the food, you must wait in the line.  It moves very slowly, and you begin to know others in the line by visiting to help pass the time.  Some are elderly poor.  Some are down on their luck.  But most of them are the working poor.  Food handouts are a two-edged sword - you are thankful for the food, but you wish you didn't have to do it.  Our community is fortunate that there are many who are working behind the scenes to make this possible.  Thank you, whoever you are...
