    Free meals are just a part of the picture

    One Tuesday evening, the Phinney Neighborhood Association (PNA) Hot Meal Program prepared fresh blueberries from St. John United Lutheran’s community garden, bbq chicken, and baked potatoes. Seven volunteers and the PNA Program Coordinator served this dinner to 60 low-income neighbors, but food was the least of what was offered.

She and her classmates were watching the moon landing in a large, echoey room on a black-and-white TV about the size of a computer screen.
