Local man combats homelessness with a tri-tip meal

News

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KGET) — One local man is doing his part to combat homelessness…one meal at a time.

Larry Koman, President of Pacific Coast Adjusters and also a member of the Bakersfield City Planning Commission, decided to hold a barbecue for the less fortunate Saturday.

Over 350 tri-tip meals were served to those in need at the Bakersfield Homeless Center on Truxtun Avenue.

Koman says with homelessness doubling in the last 12 months, according to a recent survey, he felt compelled to do something about it.

He added he’s already planning on holding the event again next year.
