This week we decided to stop by weekly farmer's market and see how much it would cost if we switched to organic produce inste of the conventionally grown (pre-ripened) produce from the grocery store and it was surprisingly inexpensive! The onions were only a quarter and a huge cucumber was $1! The tomatoes are juicy, perfectly ripe and tasted amazing.
The rest of items we got from Smart and Final.
Some of the sandwiches included swiss cheese.
One good-looking sandwich.
Danielle Directo from the LAist came along to take pictures for an article on Lunch Bunch!
We wore our festive sweaters for the occasion.
The contents of this week's bags.
One of our regulars was telling us there was a strong rain coming sunday night and he and his wife were really worried about their blankets getting soaked because he had a cane and it's difficult for them to find a close-by laundromat to carry their wet blankets to. While he didn't ask us for anything, we decided to stop by the nearest Home Depot and pick up a few plastic sheets they could use during the rain to shield their belongings from wetness.
The one pictured was for someone else, but we got the couple a very large one they could share with other people in their area. It was 10 x 25 feet. We got another large one for the nice man across the street that always gives his meals away to other homeless people before taking one for himself. He immediately told us he would give the sheet to the couple across the street. We reassured him they got one already.
Gloomy day before the rains came.
