Pizza: Never let it go to waste
Pizza - Never let it go to waste
I shot a corporate event last night (Sunday 20th Sept 2015) for WeWork and there was a few boxes of Pizza left over. It's fair to say that I love Pizza so I gratefully accepted a slice or 2 and compliments to Voodoo Ray's Pizza, it tasted great.
We don't like to see good food go to waste and WeWork have a great community spirit which I like to have inside and outside of the office. So I picked up a box full of 22'' Pizza and decided to go and find a few people in London. I figured I would aim to find homeless people but that soon got delayed as I stepped onto the Tube. 2 ladies looked at this monster of a Pizza Box and their eyes beamed with excitement. I may have to take a this box around as my new wing man. Anyway, jokes aside & we got chatting and they gratefully accepted the Pizza. I said to keep an eye on my blog as there could be a story to share about my Pizza. I just received a message on facebook chasing me for the pic's and the blog. The joys of Social Media, haha! So here it is in 3 steps;
One - The tube from Moorgate to London Bridge where I met the ladies looking for a little feast on the tube.
Two - A walk from London Bridge down the South Bank. I've done this walk so many times and see the occasional poor person asking for some food. To my surprise but delight I actually struggled to find many homeless people on my walk. I did see see a couple of good buskers though who both looked to be enjoying their time in front of the mic.
Three - People on the Street.
So I walked about 1.5 miles along the Southbank to the Hungerford Bridge. I love this brige and have shot may night time photo and a few at dawn. Sadly I had found my first homeless person. He was Romanian and about 50 years old. Said he came to London and just couldn't find work. I gave him a slice and we had a chat for a minute or 2. I gave him a second slice as I left and he was grateful.
I decided to head for the strand an there are sadly always a few people sitting in door ways there. I saw a man by the well know burger joint and he actually said thanks but no thanks to some pizza. He said he had eaten 4 burgers in the last hour and was stuffed. I said what about for breakfast but he said not to worry.
I then crossed the road to see a little lady who was making a fairly creative set up of boxes to sleep in for the night. I opened the box of Pizza and she said she would like some, just a little bit. She was tiny so I think one of these monster slices will keep her going for a bit. A few doors down from her was a guy in a sleeping bag and I saw a guy drop off a few bagettes by his side which was good to see.
Down the Strand towards Waterloo bridge and I saw 3 men on the corner and I had three slices left in the box. They were pretty drunk and I felt I'd find someone who would put the food to better use. As I got to Waterloo station there were dozens of people walking past a man selling the Big Issue. I went and said hello to him and he was well up for some food. I gave the box and the look in his eye was one of gratitude but sadly this is only a very minor help to him.
A few different emotions as I did my London walk. One thing that did make me laugh was the man by McDonalds crossed paths with me at Waterloo. It was just before I saw the gent selling the big issue. Anyway, He looked at me carrying this massive box and said 'are you still trying to find someone to give that Pizza to?'. I laughed and said yes.
I'm glad there weren't many people on the streets, but when I went home and travelled through Clapham Junction without the Pizza I saw a lady asking for change. We can't help everyone but crossed the road and thought to myself, how are there people still living on the street in current times.

Suppose you are the one who does not like to spend much on clothes. If you are in a saving mode and have been saving for a long time, you now want to have some warm clothes.
