Chico boy's dream of feeding a "fancy dinner" to homeless about comes true
CHICO, Calif. - A 5-year-old Chico boy's dream of providing a "fancy dinner" for the homeless at the Torres Shelter is about to come true.
Kieran Trent who along with his mother volunteer at the shelter are cooking up a special dinner for 144 homeless after the boy had a dream in which he was doing just that.
They obtain $700 in donated food to provide not just a dinner, but one that includes tablecloths, a menu, really good food, even flowers and dessert.
"Food is about more than just food," said Alexandra Trent, Kieran's mother. "It's about dignity and love."
"Everyone deserves some nice things in this world," she said. Kieran's dream becomes a reality Monday at 6 p.m. at the Torres Shelter when the first appetizer is served.
