....Love in a bag

"if I'm not here, I'm not eating", proclaimed "Scott" a daily customer of The Huddle, a Mission Hills restaurant.  Scott was sick with HIV/AIDS and too weak to cook.

In 1991, when Scott failed to show up for his usual breatkfast

one morning, The Huddle's owner, Ruth Henricks took action.

She joined with a group of friends who volunteered their time to help her prepare meals in a room behind the Huddle's kitchen. They called the home-delivered meals Special Delivery. Today, with that back room (and a bit more space) Ruth and a team of volunteers cook up over 300 nutritionally-balanced, fresh and home-made meals each day!

Special Delivery continues to be a volunteer organization.  91 cents of every dollar given goes directly to fresh, healthy food for the critically ill in San Diego.
