Sammy Rodriguez is on the 6th day of his fast. He is diabetic, so he’s is being careful to eat something, but very limited–little enough to experience the hunger, but not drastically enough to risk his health.
Everyday during the week, Sammy volunteers with the ICD emergency food pantry and sack lunch program. Even though he is fasting, he is preparing cheese and bologne sandwiches for those people living on the edge of survival and who come by the center for a sack lunch – people who are homeless or shadow homeless (homeless but temporarily sheltered by someone – sleeping on a couch, in a garage, on a porch. So far
Sammy has about $600 in commitments – he is dreaming of carne guisada tacos when his team makes the $1,000 goal!
