Podcast: Dignified Dining with Kris Soebroto

Print Friendly

On Underground Airwaves, we talk a lot about the enjoyment of food. But for many people there are economic and social factors that keep them from the opportunities of enjoying good, healthy food. At the Sisters of the Road Cafe, they are attempting to make eating good food available to all people. Their hot food barter model allows them to serve fresh foods that you would normally not find in a soup kitchen or homeless shelter. They also focus on dining with dignity, which creates an inclusive community where everyone’s needs can be served.

We have a story from Kris Soebroto who has worked at Sisters of the Road for several years. She has gotten to know the community at Sisters intimately and has seen first hand the humanizing effect of a dignified dining experience. She talks about the work they are attempting at Sisters and how some of the things we take for granted, such as giving a gift, can be incredibly meaningful. The story and interview were recorded at KBOO Community Radio in Portland, OR.

    Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering
    if you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet
    my newest twitter updates. I’ve been looking for a plug-in like
    this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like
    this. Please let me know if you run into anything.

    I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.

    I’ve been surfing online more than three hours
    as of late, but I by no means discovered any attention-grabbing article like yours.
    It is pretty value enough for me. Personally, if all website
    owners and bloggers made good content material as you did, the net will probably be much more useful than ever before.

    Undeniably believe that which you said. Your favorite reason appeared to be on the net the simplest thing to be aware of.
    I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while people consider
    worries that they just do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well as
    defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people can take a signal.
    Will likely be back to get more. Thanks

    Paragraph writing is also a fun, if you be familiar with after that you can write
    otherwise it is complex to write.

    When someone writes an paragraph he/she keeps the image of a user in his/her brain that how a
    user can be aware of it. Therefore that’s why this paragraph is perfect.
    Thanks!

    The other day, while I was at work, my cousin stole my apple ipad and tested to see if it can survive a
    twenty five foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now broken and she has 83 views.
    I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with someone!

    Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up.

    The text in your content seem to be running off the screen in Internet explorer.
    I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but I thought I’d post to let you know.

    The design look great though! Hope you get the issue solved
    soon. Cheers

    Link exchange is nothing else except it is simply placing the other person’s website link on your page at proper place and other person will
    also do similar in favor of you.
