Background story

Youngstown, Ohio, USA

Every day, John McLean (65), visits the St Vincent de Paul Society Dining Hall, in Youngstown, Ohio.

People who are homeless or in financial difficulty can come to the hall for warmth, a good meal, and to socialize. Youngstown, which is struggling from the loss of steel industry jobs, is one of the poorest major cities in the US, with more than one in three citizens living below the poverty line, and half the inhabitants living in areas characterized by extreme poverty.
