Do You Know the Muffin Men? They Deliver Food to Shelters Every Week
When Jack, a retired contractor, started delivering food to shelters in Oakland, California, his provisions often included muffins, inspiring one woman to dub him “The Muffin Man.” Jack, and his friends and fellow retirees, Frank and John are members of a volunteer organization that collects unused food that would otherwise go to waste from supermarkets, and brings it to shelters. The trio love using their time during retirement to help others. “If people were more kind, it would be a little easier to live,” says 85-year-old Frank.
