My interviewee was late to the Winthrop Square Park in Harvard Square, so I took up conversation with a busking musician. The conversation turned to the omnipresent topic du jour: the over-development and massive landscape changes in Cambridge, and the loss of longstanding, beloved businesses.

Local restaurants offer meals at On The Rise

Lunches for homeless women have been special this week

Lunches for homeless offered at On The Rise

This has been a week of stand-out lunches at On The Rise, Inc., the day program for homeless women at 341 Broadway. Meals provided by volunteers on weekdays are a mainstay of the program, and this week several local restaurants came together in support of that operation. They have been bringing in selections from their menus--not normally an option for the women seeking assistance at On The Rise.
