    Happy Are The Hands That Feed: Laura

    In November 2013, I came to Red Bank for a job interview that didn’t work out as I’d hoped. I was staying in a motel and spending far more each week than I anticipated. I had done my research and knew that there were marketing and technical writing jobs in NJ, but felt that I had to live locally to be considered for interviews. I also knew I should pick a city and try to make it work, instead of moving around the country as I had been doing. In desperation, I sent an email to Soul Kitchen that began, “I know you’re just a restaurant…”.
