SOME OF OUR FAVORITE LOCAL STORIES.
feeding hope: Alex’s story
With schools closed and all his siblings home each day, it’s been challenging for Alex’s family to afford enough food to keep everyone fed. Alex also was laid off from one of his two jobs, making it even more difficult to afford healthy food.
“Going to the market and buying food is too expensive. This will lessen the financial burden.”
But Alex didn’t just want to put food on the table for his family. He wanted it to be nutritious food, especially during the time of COVID-19. That’s why he was so excited about the fruit available at the Mobile Market. As he held up the bag of oranges he had just received, he said, “The vitamins—they keep you healthy.”
