Feeding Hope: Renee’s Story
“There are so many things,” Renee said as she explained how COVID-19 has affected her and her husband’s financial situation. Being retired, living with no insurance and cooking for her mother twice a week has put a strain on Renee’s budget. This was her second time visiting a Mobile Market distribution.
The food Renee received at the last distribution allowed her to provide food for her family during the pandemic, despite rising food prices. “Everything has gone up,” Renee explained. “It’s been helping me to get better meals.”
“This is wonderful. Your money is going to a very good cause. People have to eat.”
In addition to providing meals to her mother, Renee also shared the food she received with her neighbors. “I have a lot of neighbors who have a lot of kids,” she said. “The extra stuff I get I share with them. You don’t want to waste anything.”
Renee was grateful to everyone who gave their time and money to make events like this possible. “This is wonderful. Your money is going to a very good cause. People have to eat.”

Martha learned the joy of service early in life. It’s a lesson the longtime educator has shared with her three children and students. But in the past year, she discovered a new outlet: serving as a Second Harvest core volunteer and member of the Kay Porta Legacy Society.
Today more than 150 adoptive organizations enable Second Harvest, in partnership with At The Core, to provide Bite2Go to nearly 8,500 elementary, middle and high school students in Spokane, the Tri-Cities and a growing list of rural communities.
