Vancouver Restaurant Opens Its Doors To The Homeless

Ten Ten Tapas, a tapas restaurant located on the False Creek Seawall near the Burrard Street Bridge is inviting area residents in for a free monthly made-from-scratch meal.   The monthly lunches, which have been held twice so far attract appoximately 50 people.  The most recent meal consisted of grilled cheese sandwich made on homemade sourdough bread and struffed with asiago, mozzarella and cheddar cheeses, paired wtih a choice of mushroom or tomato soups or seafood chowder.  The logistics are handle by the non-profit Gathering Place, a community centre near Yaletown that serves the local population.  What a creative way to feed the cit'y's homeless and low-income population.  Wouldn't it be great if other restaurants rose to this challenge.  Vancouver is a great place to live - for eveybody!
