I could hear it in her voice—she was upset.
After working for five years at a clothing store, Lauren, a single mother of two, found herself suddenly unemployed right before the holidays when the store went out of business. She was worried about being able to feed her kids. "I know it's before Christmas, but at this point I am focused on just finding a way to provide my kids with a hot meal, not presents."
How overwhelmed would you feel in Lauren's situation?
While each experience with food insecurity is unique, together we can give them a common ending: hope.
Thanks to support from donors like you, Lauren is now purchasing groceries each month with help from SNAP benefits and her children have access to no-cost school meals so she can focus on looking for a new job.
