    WINNER FEEDS HOMELESS

"If there is something I can do to make another person's life brighter, if only for a day, then I would like to do so," Garner wrote. California Tortilla recognized the selflessness of her request and named her one of 20 winners to receive the catered meals, each of which feeds about 100 people."
