Little Ceasars Love Kitchen visits Friends of the Homeless
SPRINGFIELD – The Little Caesars Love Kitchen
made a stop at the Friends of the Homeless
(FOH) on Aug. 28 to feed the people who have been visiting the Worthington Street shelter for food.
Sam Berry, who, with his partner Fred Berry, owns the Little Caesars franchises in Chicopee, Westfield and Springfield, sponsored the appearance. Berry said it was the third time the Love Kitchen has been in Springfield.
He said his philosophy is “One hand can not clap alone.’’ He added, “We’re no better than everyone else. Everyone must eat.”
Traveling across this country and Canada, the Love Kitchen is designed to help the hungry, homeless and disaster survivors and it has fed more than two million people in 48 states and Canada.
Kathy Tobin, director of Program Development for FOH, said, “It’s been a busy summer. Since April, FOH has served 2,400 more meals than a year ago. Annually it will add up to almost 160,000 meals served at Friends of the Homeless. We greatly appreciate Little Caesars’ donation and dedication to helping the community.”
Local volunteers, led by Reverend Lauren Holm of Bethesda Lutheran Church
and East Church Congregational
also helped organize and serve the special lunch.
