Lungs and legs are getting stronger as Spring training has hit its 4th month in our Homeless Soccer League. So far we've played a few inter-squad games and a group of mechanics, but we are open to going up against any and all challengers! Contact jnratti(at)svdp-alameda.org if you're feelin' up to it.
Congratulations to these Elite 8 who graduated at this past SVdP Graduation Ceremony. Michael LeBlanc started one of our very best graduations to date with an inspiring speech about breaking through the limitations we've set for ourselves and the rest is delicious final culinary project history. Here are some pictures of that meal along with the graduates who are on a steeper angle of trajectory that ever before. 7 of 9 total graduates are *already* employed. We are very, very proud and inspired. EDITOR'S NOTE: food photos were taken after the judges demoralized each dish. Apologies for missing the "before" photos.
