Gregory is a busy and growing 8-year-old who likes to help his mother—a housekeeper—out around the house. “I help make coffee and then I help put milk in it,” he proudly shares.

His mother Wendy’s work has slowed since the pandemic, she currently works two to three days a week. To support Gregory and their family she relies on programs like our Food Shelf and BackPack Program. These important programs that you support, provide fresh and non-perishable food which fill her family’s meal gap.

“I eat chicken, I eat rice, I eat watermelon,” Gregory shares with a wide smile. His mother Wendy shares with a laugh, “He likes to eat everything! He never has any complaints.”
