Kelsy and Sienna
Hi there! Our names are Kelsey and Sienna Kroninger and we LOVE Food Not Bombs. We have been coming to Food not Bombs for the past year every chance we get. The food is always tasty; though we’re not vegans; the people are great and extremely caring and giving, and the atmosphere of the area is always happy, welcoming and full of love. It is needless to say our little family is endlessly grateful for what Food Not Bombs brings to the Santa Cruz community.
In the last year we went from living in rich families in big houses,to moving into our car on and living on the road, then through jails and recovery programs, we lived on the street fully with just our two bikes and four backpacks for seven days when we received a lot of help moving into a tiny apartment near the Boardwalk with our tiny puppy dog, Eckeys.
We have lived here our whole lives here and Santa Cruz will always be home, but we are ready to go see the rest of the world. Our goal is to buy property somewhere away from here and building something there; a place where people who can’t afford traditional rehab can have a safe place to get help getting sober and staying that way. We have found our reason to live and that is to help others and spread only love.
No matter what happens during the week here in Santa Cruz California, Food Not Bombs has always been ready to feed us healthy food, give us warm clothes if we need them, have someone to share stories with, and a reason to smile at 4:00 pm every Saturday and Sunday by the post office. Thank you to Keith for bringing Food Not Bombs here, and thank you to Tony for bringing your artwork to this event. Thanks to everyone who is in any way involved with Food Not Bombs Santa Cruz; you have all helped us on our journey so much. Peace and Love.
