Children need food for the weekend

The Food Bank received an email this morning from a school counselor at one of the schools we serve. She had a conversation with one of the students that receives the packs…

Student- (on Tuesday morning 1/29) “When do we get our bags?”
Me- “Not until Friday.”
Student- “Aw, I can’t wait!”
Me- “Why do you like it?”
Student- “It makes me feel nice.”
Me- “How does it make you feel nice?”
Student- “It makes me feel full.”

This brought tears to our eyes with sadness and joy. Sadness in just knowing that there are kids out there going hungry and joy for the fact that we are able to help.
