Our group of 13 has arrived safe, happy, and tired.
We walked the long walk to the grocery store and returned with ample provisions for the next few days. Our hostel resides on the edge of the Tenderloin. We are surrounded by services for people without homes, and by countless corner markets stocked with sugary, starchy foods. But for fresh, healthy foods, one must venture blocks away. A food desert in the midst of densely packed California.
Tomorrow, we begin our alternative break trip in earnest by venturing North to eat and serve with students from Zaytuna College, and UC Berkeley Muslim Students Association.
