We're well into our 15th year of serving food on Skid Row, in downtown Los Angeles and we've served over 730,000 meals! Thank you to all of our supporters!

birthdaycrowd.gif (91638 bytes) Castellani has celebrated a few birthdays downtown. On this day Ray's son, "Jr." held a cake and hundreds shared in the joy with confetti and cake and music.  All the people downtown signed a poster sized birthday card for Ray which to this day still energizes you when you touch it.

Long after the food is gone so many meander up to the truck for a hug or to share a story with Ray and the volunteers.  Usually when I'm down with my camera the people want us to take their picture with Ray. However, when strangers come by with cameras it is quite another story. I know they must trust that we're not going to exploit them or their pictures.

Whenever an article is written about Frontline or a news segment done, it's always amazing that the street people already know about it when we get downtown. The communication among those on the streets is unbelievable - news travels fast, that is as fast as the feet will carry it. If Ray was sick and missed a serving and wasn't there, the entire street society will know. If something exciting happens, everyone feels like it happened to them - they take such pride in Frontline. Here everyone is looking at an article written when we surpassed serving 500,000 meals.
