Thank You From Our Clients

 

Client ImageCynthia is a stay at home mom. Childcare is far too expensive, so she opts to stay at home to take care of her son. Her husband builds furniture, but he works off commission. Some months, they just do not have enough to cover the bills and groceries. When that happens, they need a little food assistance from the food bank.  

 

Cynthia is grateful that the food bank exists. While it's unfortunate that people in our area experience hunger, she says, "It's nice to see people coming together to feed the community".
