Families under duress have been coming to Home and Hope churches and synagogues for over a decade. They receive warm meals, a place to sleep, and a day-care/office facility at which to spend the day if they're not attending school or going to work.

For the past five years I had been bringing ice cream, which didn't entail any effort (or risk to the diners). Last night we were short of cooks, so I threw a couple of trays of chicken into the oven. There were no ill effects, and they asked for the leftovers to fill a gap over the weekend.
I suspect my future responsibilities will be increased, but that's all right because the pay is good.
