Good Stuff in TEC: Rhode Island

Helping Hands Hold Food

From the church kitchen, she packs up crackers, spoons and cups. She loads her car trunk, lined with a sheet, and climbs back in her car.

First stop, Narragansett, where the chef at the Galilee Mission for Fisherman has soup hot ready for pickup. With two containers filled with chicken escarole securely in her trunk, she heads south to the docks. She does nothing more than stop her car along one wharf, and then another, open the trunk, and pull out the soup. Slowly, people walk toward her from boats and buildings, approaching from different directions.

“Would you like some soup?”
