RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — A national project aiming to humanize the homeless population is in Richmond this week. It is called ‘Fifty Sandwiches.’
For three months, founder Justin Doering is traveling the country to take homeless men and women out for a meal in exchange for an in-depth discussion about how they ended up on the streets.
“Fifty Sandwiches is a registered non-profit journey dedicated to presenting the public with a rare glimpse into the lives and stories of America’s homeless,” says Doering.
He adds there is also a goal to break stereotypes in our communities.
