“Missing a meal” is not the latest diet craze, but the definition of “food Insecurity.” Right here in Arizona one in 7 families are considered food insecure like Andrea, who needed her car to get to her job.
“This month my car broke and the only way to pay for it was to take the money from my food budget. I would skip dinner to make sure my kids had something at night,” said Andrea. “Knowing there was a week until my next paycheck was when I found the food bank and was provided a cart full of groceries.”
“I was so thankful to find so many people who care. It meant a lot to my family.”
You can help neighbors like Andrea put nutritious food on her table this month. Here are some ideas YOU can take action this month.
