Hard Decisions

January 16, 2019

We hear it all the time, and no family should have to ask themselves this: “At the end of the month, do we buy food or pay the bills?”

Ronda, like many others in our community, reminds us of the importance of our work. “If we weren’t able to get food from the Food Bank, our family would go without some meals. We are very appreciative of the support and for all the volunteers who are here helping out.”

Ronda and her husband have four kids – two school age and two living on their own. Their older kids are working hard to maintain employment. With two still at home and in school, the pressure really weighs on her and her husband. Fortunately, they are able to turn to the Food Bank for help when it comes time to make the hard decision to pay the bills or buy food for their family.

“It’s too often that we don’t have enough money to buy food and pay our bills. I am thankful for all that the Food Bank does for my family,” Ronda said.
