A 60-year-old widow who lives with her children, nephew and three grandchildren, and works part-time as a janitor at a technical school, walking or taking the bus, has been cooking enough to feed 1,000 people a week since the pandemic started.
She borrows the church truck to buy groceries on Thursday and Friday and cooks into the wee hours of the night for Saturday’s feedings. Her church pays for the food, relying on donations. She prepares the meals singlehandedly, while church volunteers serve or deliver them to shut-ins.

The corporation purchases the cars wholesale through a grant, and she will pay $125 a month and will own it after three years.
