Casa Maria Goes All Solar And Stuff

There was a low rumble among the guys at the Casa Maria soup kitchen when I arrived for my early-morning shift a few weeks back. John, a homeless guy from Seattle who helps out every morning, was the first to mention the new solar panels. As the morning went on others cracked little jokes here and there, or just kind of looked up at the small solar arrray with obvious curiosity.

The panels were made possible through private donations and a grant through Technicians for Sustainability. A post on the TFS Facebook page says the panels will help the soup kitchen save $70 a month. That might not seem like much, but for a place that depends completely on donations of cash and food to continue its mission to feed the hungry, it is.
