I’m on disability. My rent takes up most of my cheque. If I didn’t have Oak Table to come to during the week, I would lose my apartment. Eating here let’s me get an apartment where I feel safe and have my privacy. I don’t think I could live in a hotel or a rooming house. The food is good and everyone is nice here.
