Reno’s anonymously promoted “Great Homeless Feedoff” held today promised to be loosely organized. It was. A group of about 10 gathered near the BELIEVE sculpture at City Plaza at 11 a.m. came prepared with carts of food, water, Gatorade, snacks, and boxes of hygiene packs provided by Reno Satanic.
Included were an IT professional, a teacher, and Sparks City Council Candidate Wendy Stolyarov. Not sure of next steps, the group waited until about five past 11 and headed down the Truckee River bike path to give away the supplies.
The group meandered down the path and back, meeting with people along the river and offering water and snacks to anybody along the way. They ended up back at the plaza and then proceeded through Wingfield Park.
While it was a small gathering, Stolyarov said about 50 people were contacted. Much appreciation was expressed.
