SOME OF OUR FAVORITE LOCAL STORIES.
FEEDING HOPE: PRISCILLA’S STORY
Now 66, Priscilla is on a fixed income that doesn’t quite meet all her financial needs. She recently moved into her own place after living with her daughter for a period of time. “When you’re on a little over $1,000 a month, it’s a lot when your rent is about $550,” she said.
To help ease some of her financial burden, Priscilla goes to the Post Falls Food Bank, where she receives a variety of food, including lots of fresh produce, at no cost. She especially appreciates all the fruit, since she loves making smoothies. She says that fruit and other produce at the store is often expensive.
For now, Priscilla gratefully turns to the food bank for help. “Maybe one day I won’t have to. But it’s here if you have to. That’s the awesome part.”
