Food for the Stomache and for the Soul

Posted by on August 3, 2015

At the end of last school year, Morah Eta gave each person in the middle school a bag filled with non-perishable foods to give out to a homeless person they saw on the street. Well, today, as I was on my way to Moes with my mom and brother, we saw a homeless man holding up a sign on the sidewalk that said he was hungry. We had kept the bag of food in the car for a situation like this, so my mom immediately pulled over and we got out to bring the food over to him.

First, I asked the man what his name was. He told me his name was Mathew. Then, I asked him if he lived in Jacksonville and he said that he was from the south side and was trying to save up for an apartment. I decided to give the bag of food to him because he looked like he really needed it and I saw that he had other food given to him, but it was mostly junky food. When I gave the food to Mathew, he looked like I had made his day and said, “God bless you.”                                             As we were walking back to the car I thought to myself, ” I hope that other people saw what we did and will do the same thing.” I guess giving is also receiving in its own way.
