Claudia

Oakland, California

"Without the food pantry, I would not be able to feed my daughters healthy foods that I cannot afford all the time."

Even though she works full-time as a caregiver, Claudia was still having trouble putting food on the table for her five daughters. Then she found her local food bank. Now, not only does she get the food she needs for her family, she also volunteers on a regular basis to serve others in her community that need a little help.
