WHAT PEOPLE SAY
When I was the cook, I’d try to have 2 or 3 different breads available as opposed to just one... or have a savory and a sweet selection for breakfast – little things like that allow us to retain the dignity and choice of those who need us.
Dorothy Day has some of the best meals I've ever had. There are a lot of food resources in Berkeley. Still, I always come to Dorothy Day because the meals are healthy and prepared from scratch - they even accommodate vegetarians. Dorothy Day has enhanced my life like nowhere else.
There is a very tangible value of kindness, to recognize the dignity of anybody as they walk in the door. This agency is generous to you in a way that inspires generosity from the people we help as well – in a way we are all saving each other.
