Thanks to you, Tyler can eat his favorite summer vegetables.
It might surprise you if you ask 4-year-old Tyler what his favorite foods are…
Turnip greens, broccoli, and carrots (with a little ranch dip on the side, please)! Your donations make it possible for him to eat his favorite foods a lot more often.
The nutritious food you’re giving Tyler now will prepare him to learn and grow this fall when he starts Pre-Kindergarten. Tyler’s parents, Vanessa and James, couldn’t be more grateful.
We met Tyler’s family at Helping Hands of Humphreys County. They waited patiently in their car while volunteers unloaded a Second Harvest truck with its twice-monthly delivery of fresh fruits, veggies, and other perishable items.
Their family is living on a fixed income. Vanessa is diabetic, and it’s challenging to find food she can eat while on a tight budget. Insulin and other medical costs add up to almost $200 each month.
“It’s a good thing they have here,” Vanessa said of the food pantry.
Vanessa knows other families who’ve been helped by the food pantry, too. She said without it, “There would be a lot of hungry families.”
Thank you for helping kids like Tyler and his parents get the nutrition they need to keep them all healthy and strong!
