I was in the East Bay this morning to meet with some clients. My organization, along with a few others, are representing homeless clients on a matter. One of the clients had gathered the rest outside of her tent under the freeway. As cars zoomed past, we explained the matter and got them to sign paperwork.
A few minutes in, someone on a bike rolled up with grocery bags. He pulled out some soda, bags of chips, and a platter of cheese, crackers, and dried meat. He opened them up and invited us to partake.
We finished the paperwork and got ready to leave. We thanked our clients for their graciousness. The owner of the tent beamed and said, “I really believe in hospitality. You came to visit my home, and I wanted to make sure you felt welcome. Hope you enjoyed the snacks!”
