Bernadette's Story

Sitting outside of a food pantry surrounded by her children running and smiling on the playground, Bernadette talks about the blessings in her life.

Bernadette’s husband works 40+ hours a week as a line clearance tree trimmer to provide for their family.

“He’s an extremely hard worker,” Bernadette shared. “He supports our beautiful family, but I’ve learned that everyone needs a little help sometimes.”

At the pantry, Bernadette receives wholesome food like bread, meats and fresh vegetables, but that’s not all she takes from the panty.  

“Just listen to the people in there,” Bernadette says. “This place is not only supplying people with food, they are talking, sharing and encouraging. This pantry provides food, but also fellowship.”
