Abt 1925-Cannon St. on the Lower East Side of NY.

My father told us, more than once, that when he was a child he would not eat. No matter what his mother gave him, he would not eat. So she took him to a place where they gave him some kind of porridge or oatmeal thing for breakfast. He did not eat it. Comes lunchtime, he goes in, and it’s the same porridge, but now it’s cold. Dinner, the same thing. Till finally he ate it and he never turned down his mother’s food again.

Can this story be true?  I see from a map that the Henry Street Settlement was near Cannon St.  Any thoughts on this?
