Last year, in an effort to make coverage of our city’s intractable homelessness crisis more urgent, pointed, and inspiring of action, Crosscut launched the Homeless in Seattle project, an “all-out blitz” of homelessness coverage. This year, it falls on June 28, and outlets around the city will be posting their stories on the ongoing homelessness crisis along with the hashtag #SeaHomeless. The timing of my column doesn’t work out to join in on the day of, but I want to weigh in anyway. Thus, this week’s column is about a rather simple sandwich, rather than some esoteric indulgence. Specifically, a pork sandwich from Pioneer Square’s Grand Central Bakery. Normally, I eat the food item in question, enjoy it, and recommend it to you. But I didn’t eat this sandwich and, as it was a seasonal special, it’s not even currently on the menu. I have precious little to say about food this week. We can get back to $12 tartines next week, but this is important. This story is about the man who did eat the sandwich: Jerry.
