It scared me.

SOUND OFF
November 8, 1993
Q: I’d like to know why there’s no place for the hungry and homeless to eat in Lawrence on Saturday. Neither LINK nor the Salvation Army is open, I believe. A: “There is a group from the LINK kitchen who are attempting to organize a Saturday afternoon meal,” said Pam Cassagrande, chair of the LINK board of directors. “There used to be one out of St. John’s garage … but it got to be financially, and volunteer-wise, difficult to continue. It’s very expensive to feed people, especially between 75 and 125 people each week.” Cassagrande said several groups are working to put a Saturday meal together. “I hope in the next few weeks there will be something,” she said.
