Funniest Lines in the story:
"Andrews was able to bring in a host of city officials and luminaries to his feeding"
"I don't really come out for the food, I come out to socialize. I'm a socialite," said the homeless man from North Long Beach.
"My mom's not here so, yeah," he said of his dessert-first strategy. "And I didn't get no carrots either."
When asked why he piled so much food on his plate, the gray-haired Whitfield smiled and said "Two reasons. One, I'm still growing. Two, when God sends a blessing, you need to receive the fullness of his blessing."

God bless councilman Andrews for always thinking of the community.

This is a really touching story of people helping people who need help. I hope we see more of the
100 black men group. They sound like men with a real concern for the young kids. I do hope that the groups can come up with a better description than "feeding". It sounds like they are feeding farm animals. Just my opinion.

I agree. This story was well written and just the right people were quoted. Good job.

And when was the last time you "judgers" volunteered your services at one of the events?

Thank you Councilman Andrews. No other political figure does the things that continue to do.
