Each year, the Freestore Foodbank provides boxes of food to local families to ensure they have a meal for the Thanksgiving and December holidays.
Each household receives a box containing: either a chicken or turkey (depending on family size), canned vegetables, stuffing or rice, and macaroni and cheese. Each household also receives a bag of produce.
The holiday meals have been a tremendous support to Betty, who used to donate to the Freestore Foodbank. She found herself struggling with financial hardships after going through a divorce.
“If it wasn’t for the Freestore Foodbank, I don’t know what I would do,” she tells us.
