Unlocking the door for the hungry or lonely

Unlocking the door to the now-defunct Love Kitchen in Lakeside is a goal for many of the faith-based and nonprofit community. A formative meeting was held on Tuesday at the Blue Ridge Unified School District offices to garner possible solutions to fulfill the critical need of serving food to people who entered those doors daily over the last 35 years. BRUSD, which owns the building, leased it to the Love Kitchen for $1 per year. A follow-up meeting next week hopefully will result in a plan that will once again open the locked doors to feed the hungry or lonely.
