Sisters Are Grateful for Second Harvest

A social worker for over 30 years, Jenny’s career was based on helping others. Now, her own family needs assistance.

Jenny was forced to retire from the Nashville Health Department after suffering from kidney failure, and then beginning dialysis treatment.

After her daughter moved back home with three children of her own, juggling medical costs, food, and caring for her grandkids became impossible. Even living with her sister, Mechelle, didn’t make ends meet. Bills and stress mounted on the entire family.

When introduced to a nearby Second Harvest-supported Mobile Pantry at Highland Heights Church of Christ in Robertson County, Jenny took the opportunity to fight back against stress and hunger. “I really appreciate this because once I pay my bills, I have very little left to buy food,” she says. “It’s hard, you know. A few years ago, $60 went further at the grocery store. Today, it doesn’t buy as much. I find myself searching for plant-based foods because the price of meat is so high.”

Today, working alongside her sister, Jenny and her family are able to handle family expenses better because they found a kindhearted friend in neighbors like you. “I thank God for the people who bless us with food,” Mechelle shares. “And I thank God simply for today. Thank you.”
