“I never thought of myself as someone who needed to use a food shelf,” shared Terri. “But not knowing if I was going to eat was probably the worst feeling I’ve ever dealt with.”
Stories like Terri’s are not uncommon in the Northland. She moved with the promise of a job after caring for her mother who had recently passed away. The job fell through and soon she needed assistance.
“The food shelf helped me immensely,” she said. “Because I’ve never had to ask for help it showed me that it’s okay not to be okay.”
