Thousands of children in our community are at risk of going to bed hungry while their parents often can’t sleep for worrying how they will pay this month’s rent and the overdue utility bill and have money left to buy groceries. Tamara was one of those worried parents.
When Tamara’s life suddenly turned upside down, she was deeply concerned about how she would feed her three young children. Over the next two years, Center for Food Action helped Tamara put food on her table and keep her lights on. These were the tangibles that helped Tamara re-build a solid life for herself and her children. In Tamara’s words this wasn’t all that CFA did for her family:
“The staff went above and beyond to help me through what I can only call an unbearably stressful time. They were kind, thoughtful and extremely knowledgeable about various support options available throughout the County. They always lifted my spirits and helped me feel worthy. They even paid attention to my children, offering them books and crayons to help them feel comfortable. I will forever be grateful for their kindness and support.”
Tamara is once again on solid ground with a good job and an affordable apartment. As a recent volunteer at CFA, she says, it makes her feel good to give to an organization who supported her and her children during their ‘darkest hour’.
