When I would ask folks why they were there, this is what I remember being told:
"I want my children to understand how important it is to take care of others, and to see that others don't have a life as good as theirs."
"I drive a bus everyday and I pass by these people and I had to do something to help."
"My mother just made a bunch of food and told me to take it down here and feed people."
"Why can't we have enough food to feed everyone?" That was Mr. Curtis from the Praline Connection. He could often be found feeding the poor.
