"Thank you for helping me. I never thought I would be in this position. Thanks for caring." These are the words of a Food Bank client who recently received food at a distribution.
Partner agencies report they typically hear
"I can't find a job, and that's why we're here to get food."
"I now have custody and care of my grandchildren, and I only have one check per month."
"I lost my job and went back to school in order to complete my education in the hope of finding a good job to support my family."
"The food provided by Second Harvest is helping us meet our needs."
