"where eating can be your good deed for the day"

I had heard about Cafe 458, but I drove past it the other day. It is really a great example of an effective way of assisting the homeless. They act as a food kitchen (restaurant) that the attendees have to be nominated by a social service organization. They get a balanced meal served with dignity. The restaurant also has resume and job placement services as well as acting as an address for the homeless (this is necessary for getting a driver's license or any form of ID). On the weekends, the public can eat there, and all of the money goes to support the center. It is staffed by volunteers so if you want to serve or help with resumes, check out the website...
