New Orleans: a Kiwanis town
Ronald Kujawa lives under a bridge. At lunchtime, he can count on a good meal at Lantern Light. The ministry relies on volunteers, including the Kiwanis family, to accomplish its mission of serving the homeless and working poor of New Orleans.
"I don't like coming here," Kujawa says. "But everyone at some given point in time needs help, and these people are doing an awesome job."
Louis Coleman, another Lantern Light visitor, agrees."It's nice to be able to come here and get some food," he says. "It helps carry us through the night.".
