VOICES OF HOPE
“We are in the ‘in between’ category for food benefits. We don’t qualify for state assistance but could really use it. The Mobile Markets have been absolutely amazing. My family has benefited from them so much. We are often given more than we could use and pass it along to people that need extra goods.
“I try hard to not take my children into stores during this uncertain time. The Mobile Market is fantastic in not requiring close contact with others, and we know the goods have been handled by people with PPE on.
“I hope they continue to do Mobile Markets. I have spread the word to others about them and they have benefited also. Food helps spread love.” -Kennewick family
