Aide de vacances pour les familles dans le besoin

Christina’s family is like many families across Middle and West Tennessee. When every day is a struggle to put food on the table, planning a special holiday meal is hard to imagine.

“The holidays are coming up and we’re wondering if we’re going to have enough to feed the family,” Christina says.

Her family of four lives in Chester County where her husband repairs semi-trailers for a living and she stays at home to care for their children. She would love to have a job, too, but childcare is just too expensive.

The one-income household earns just enough to not qualify for SNAP benefits but still struggles to make ends meet most months.

“It’s very hard being a family these days, even when you are working,” Christina says. “Paying bills, it’s very hard – these are trying times.”

Free school meals are a big help for Christina’s kids, Caden, 11, and Alayna, 5. But when there is no school, Christina worries about feeding her little ones.

Thankfully, Christina found help through one of our Partner Agencies, the Henderson Community Soup Kitchen. Here she has access to the healthy foods her growing children need – fresh fruit, vegetables, lean meats, and more.

“It’s hard not having enough food to feed your family. What y’all are doing is a beautiful thing. Thank you.” Your support of Second Harvest today will help provide the essential food needed across the 46 counties we serve, taking the worry away for families who are hungry this holiday season. “It feels good because I know we have food to eat when we come here,” Christina says.

Chaque dollar que vous donnez aide à fournir au moins 4 repas à des familles dans le besoin grâce à Second Harvest.
