Feeding The Homeless In Fredericksburg by Project Fredericksburg - 6 months ago
"From Project Fredericksburg Blog: "Before I had even had my second cup of tea this morning, Paula Bartello, director of FeedFred, had served breakfast to over 70 needy members of our community. And not just any breakfast; Paula spends her Sunday mornings serving up her signature burritos that she prepares herself and today’s menu included Philly Cheesesteak Burritos. I caught up with her in front of the library where she was serving lunch from her car. “I struggled a lot myself and I have just been blessed since I met my husband and started this company. We say that we do this for selfish reasons. We just love these people. When I first started doing this, maybe my second or third breakfast, there was a young homeless pregnant girl who came and ate. She started crying and said, ‘Thank you so much! I just felt my baby kick for the first time!’ and right then, I thought, Yes, this is the right thing for me.” ”What are your goals for the future?” “I would love to have a food truck. There are a lot of kids in this community living in motels and a lot of them haven’t had a home cooked meal. I would love to be able to deliver hot food to them.” As Paula and I chatted, one of the gentleman there said, “I love you all. You make my life bearable.” Thank you FeedFred!" THANKS FOR THE DONATION CUSTOM INK!"
