Earlier this month, we arranged for a free family photo session for Bread for the City clients who wanted a professional portrait for the holidays. The results were so fun and inspiring. I want to share some of them with you today. See below, or check out the whole set on Flickr here.
(A heartfelt thanks to Steve Goldenberg, who has provided his excellent photography to us for three years' worth of holiday seasons.)
"I don't come to get food any more because I'm doing okay now, but I tell others to come. I was on Facebook and somebody posted saying that she didn't have clothes for her baby and I told her to just come here, this is the place."
"Things have gotten better in this neighborhood. And we still needed a place like this. People can't wait for it to expand. It's a positive motivation thing. You come here, things aren't crazy, people leave their crazy at the door. You get respect, so you give respect back. That's what we need."
