FEEDING HOPE: ANNABELLE’S STORY
Annabelle is saving up to go back to school for a graduate degree in social work. But that’s meant an even tighter budget than usual. “I make just too much to qualify (for government assistance) but it’s not like I have a lot of extra money,” said Annabelle.

In addition to going to grad school, Annabelle plans to give back to organizations like Second Harvest in the future—so that she can help others when they need a hand, just like they helped her.
