Food Bank at Noon

At the noon lunch hour I witnessed a long line of people stretching down South King Street beneath I-5.  There's a food bank at South King and 10th Avenue that serves the Asian community.  Whenever I return from a trip to the post office at lunch I walk up King Street and I frequently see people waiting in line.  The food bank is a modular structure surrounded by a high chainlink fence.  There is a gate manned by one or two attendants.  People seem to be admitted individually.  And when a person returns she or he will be carrying a plastic shopping bag filled with produce which often times she or he will pick through and clean squatting right there in the gutter along King Street.
