Feeding hope: Cecelia’s story
But Cecelia’s budget looks a lot different during the COVID-19 pandemic. Her husband’s lawn care and handyman business used to support them. Now, they’re struggling to pay all the bills.
“It’ll help a lot, especially the oranges because I’m supposed to get one a day.”
Cecelia misses a lot about life before the pandemic, but she’s grateful for the ways the community has come together to support one another. “I just appreciate everything everyone is doing for everybody,” she said, pointing to the Mobile Market. “I just pray that it’s over soon.”
