February 5.  We helped make sandwiches, then went on a tour with a local church to some neighborhoods where they provide food for kids.  Then we went to the city’s dump, where we also gave out sandwiches, water, and oranges.  Many people work at the dump to make a living (not employees of the dump).  They scavenge materials to build their homes, look for things to sell to make money, and find food for their animals.  This boy was balancing a cup on his head–he liked seeing the photo on my little digital screen.
