New Soup Kitchen Visitors

Every year, soup kitchens offer Thanksgiving meals to those who can’t afford to buy food for the holiday. The homeless and the poor are familiar visitors. But at the Broadway Presbyterian Church, a new group of people are also waiting in line this Thanksgiving.

I remember shooting the standup for this video about twenty times in the cold. I apologize to my classmate, who’s holding the camera, for subjecting him to an hour of wind and near freezing temperatures.

I had a major problem this week – I didn’t have a solid story! I helped my classmate film his piece earlier in the day and I had my eyes set on the soup kitchen at the Broadway Presbyterian Church. They served their food restaurant style with menus. I thought that was very unique and I wanted to cover it, but by the time we got there around 5PM, they were cleaning up and only a couple of people were eating. Luckily, with a little quick thinking, I picked up two interviews from people walking on the street. Phew!
