• Meet Allan Law, The Sandwich Guy

     
    FROM THE Fall 2016 ISSUE
     

Allan Law, a 32-year veteran in the Minneapolis Public School system, founded Minneapolis Recreation Development in 1967. Law made the program with a focus to feed and provide emergency assistance to as many people in need as possible. Since then, he has volunteered more than 175,000 hours, and has personally spent almost $500,000 serving the poor and homeless in the Minneapolis area.

Each night from 9 p.m. to 10 a.m., Law, aka “The Sandwich Guy,” drives the inner-city streets of the Twin Cities with an average of 1,600 homemade sandwiches and other aid in tow, in search of people that need some extra help.

For groups that want to help out, there are opportunities like volunteer sandwich making, or becoming a partner organization. Over 500 community groups, churches, schools and individuals have volunteered and donated time or money to the program in the last five years. 

As co-presidents of Eureka Recycling, a social enterprise dedicated to demonstrating that waste is preventable—not inevitable—Kate Davenport and Lynn Hoffman want to help planners think beyond recycling bins and compost collection.
