Real Stories of Hunger

Your Story: Liz
Chicago, IL

“I always wanted to go back to school, but as a single mom with three boys, it was tough. Last year I decided to go back. We get by, but it’s a struggle, particularly during the holidays. Without the food pantry I don’t know what I’d do. I may not have a lot to give my boys, but they love food, so when the pantry gives us an amazing meal, I know they’re happy. And when they get older, they will go back to food pantries – but as volunteers, full of love, compassion and support for people in need.”
