For elderly and disabled residents of the Bernal Heights neighborhood in San Francisco, Herman Travis is a lifeline. It is nearly impossible for them to bring the food that they need to their homes, so every Tuesday Herman partners with the San Francisco Food Bank to bring 1,300 pounds of food directly to them.

Although Herman is unemployed as of late, he finds great purpose through his selfless acts of service. "It makes me feel good, seeing them smile when I knock on their door. It just makes me feel good," Herman says humbly. For his neighbors the feelings are even more intense - to them Herman is a "blessing" and they would be "completely lost without him".
