Meet Emily

Food Bank Client

Food Bank for the Heartland

“The Food Bank has actually helped my friends. A restaurant I worked at a couple years ago had a gas leak and an explosion, and we all lost our jobs for a while. Quite a few of us came here (to Food Bank for the Heartland) or were referred here. It is kind of scary to think that you can be without so quickly, and that happened to me and quite a few friends. There was a lot of community outreach. A lot of places steered us toward the Food Bank when we were still looking for jobs because our income had been taken away so quickly.”
