Feeding Hope: Kandace's Story

“I wish it would all go away,” Kandace said of the hardships caused by the COVID-19 pandemic as she waited in line for a Mobile Market distribution to begin.

Kandace used to volunteer at a food bank in high school. This was her first time being on the receiving end of a hunger-relief organization. After her husband and sister were laid off in the wake of the COVID-19 crisis, and with three kids at home, Kandace decided to attend a Mobile Market event in her neighborhood.

The food she received from the event brought some relief during a challenging time for her family. “I’ll be able to make better meals,” said Kandace.

As she watched the Mobile Market team finish setting up, she said, “Thank you to the people who helped make this possible. You’re very appreciated.”
