“My boys and I recommended Food Bank on Wheels!!
This year has already had its toughness and then we add a break up with my children’s father (they are in process of transitioning and prefer males over females, and unfortunately it meant an end for all of us as a family). Lots of struggles now trying to juggle full rent, full bills and full everything on my own and add in covid 19 and no work. I decided to try and better myself to give my boys and I a better life so I enrolled in school on top of my son starting kindergarten and trying to juggle everything doesn’t allow for time to go to a regular food bank and back since I do not have my license as that’s just one expense I can’t add on top of everything else. Not able to go to a regular food bank as my time and stresses juggling everything are already so thin they have been a life saver and the look on my sons eyes when they give him the things he absolutely loves gives me a glimpse of hope and not an absolute failure. I appreciate everyone’s hard work and it’s such a blessing. God bless everyone and thank you so so very much! ”
