A local nonprofit scored three months' worth of Ike's Place sandwiches to hand out to the city's homeless youth, thanks to a successful Facebook campaign.
“At the Crossroads” has been working with kids from the Tenderloin and Mission neighborhoods who haven't had a stable or consistent place to call home for the last decade. The organization's staff performs street outreach in the evenings, staying out as late as 11 p.m. to deliver food and hygiene supplies while connecting homeless youth to much-needed services.
For 14 years, they've doled out peanut butter and jelly sandwiches — items that were available at the food bank and wouldn't spoil. That's about to change.
