    Casa Maria also does lunches on Sundays. They also hand out soup with their bag lunches.

    Thanks go to Spanky and Landfill who generated the original content while we were occupying the sidewalk at Viente de Agosto Park. Their work was fleshed out by Miraim first and recently updated by me. Thank you for the additional info, we will work to add to and keep this guide updated.
