Slide Show: Kreeg Peeples
Kreeg Peeples shows off an issue of Street Roots, the newspaper he volunteers with seven days a week.
Meals on wheels: the Potluck in the Park truck makes its way to deliver meals to the nearly 400 people who show up at Bryant Park every Sunday.
The setup begins: fresh bread and early arrivals at Bryant Park.
Potluck in the (packed) Park in full swing. Participation this year is up 20 percent over last year’s figures.
Don’t forget your greens! Potluck in the Park works hard to provide balanced meals with fruits and salads.
Peeples with other Potluck in the Park volunteers. “We’re not just filling empty tummies,” he says. “There is a community here. The emotional paycheck I get is that people come back because they feel like they were cared about.”
