Assistance Takes Time

So one hears that an effort toward assistance for children’s breakfast & lunch meals received a lower initial response than some expected. Perhaps, but responses take time – especially in a community where large numbers of children live in poor families that almost certainly do not have conventional broadband access.

Initial responses are not indicative of need. It will take time for families to learn by word of mouth that meals are available. There is no reason whatever to mention how few arrived on the first day; more will arrive in future days as awareness grows. Along the way, adjustments can be made (and may have to be made) to quantities and for scheduling to accommodate greater numbers.

To provide meals is the right course; providers are acting well and compassionately in defense of others. Meeting needs takes time, but one has no doubt these needs can be met.
