Second-annual event will raise money and canned goods for the homeless. A splendid time is guaranteed for all.
Last year’s All You Need is Love (And Food) event went so well, organizers decided to do it again.

Women in babushkas and hijabs and men in VFW hats peppered a line of hundreds of people Saturday at Trinity Lutheran Church for a hot meal, children’s dental clinic and produce distribution. Organizer Jason Weiner said Trinity Lakewood Community Outreach — the group he helped found, that puts on the monthly event — distributed more than 11,000 pounds of fresh produce to 214 households, reaching an estimated 1,000 people. “It’s nice to know that so many people are going to have fresh produce for Thanksgiving,” Weiner said. Unfortunately, that’s a luxury many Americans don’t have. In 2010, 48.8 million Americans lived in food-insecure households, meaning one or more members of a household didn’t have access to enough food for a healthy, …
