    My Yiayia/grandmother always fed the transients going through her small town in Utah looking for work.  Yiayia was of the opinion that it was her Christian calling and it was some mother's son who needed help.  She barely spoke English as she was an immigrant from Crete. She was an excellent cook. She had a very good garden, some chickens.

    Yiayia and Pappou/grandfather had a small coffee house/boarding house and were able to support their 7 children and a young boy who lived with them.
