Hi, my name is Jim Macdonald, and I have an odd assortment of interests. In no particular order, I love Yellowstone, I am an anti-authoritarian activist and organizer, and I have a background in philosophy, having taught at the college level. My blog has a lot more links to my writing and my other Web sites. In Jim's Eclectic World, I try to give a holistic view of my many interests. Often, all three passions show themselves interweaving in the very same blog. Anyhow, I think it's a little different. But, that's me. I'm not so much out there, but taken together, I'm a little unusual.

    More on DC Central Kitchen and the food contract for homeless shelters

    ***My friend Becky wrote this on DC Independent Media; I'm sharing the link to it. In the link, I also am participating in the conversation. There's a lot more information on the contract as well as background information about DC Central Kitchen.***

    Last week when the Washington Post reported that food delivery to a number of city homeless shelters had been interrupted due to the city’s failure to deliver a contract to the DC Central Kitchen (DCCK), the DC Anti-War Network (DAWN) weekly action group was able to mobilize and act pretty quickly. We had already been preparing and distributing food and other supplies on a weekly basis since mid-January, so we wondered not if we could do something, but how large scale an effort we could manage.

    DC Central Kitchen Deserves the Contract!

    Just to update people on this, ultimately DC Central Kitchen was given a contract, and the fast that the leaders of DC Central Kitchen were having ended. The contract with Nutrition Inc. was simply for temporary sustenance to some of the affected shelters.

    In any event, we continue our homeless service every week.
