Lisa is a single mother of twins under 2, with another baby on the way. She comes into the Food Bank for groceries, but more importantly for the diapers, wipes, baby cereals, and jar food that are so necessary for her little one. The larger her twins grow, the more expensive diapers get, making it very hard for Lisa to make ends meet while surviving solely on income assistance and child tax. Recently, Lisa expressed to our volunteers how grateful she is for the provision of baby supplies at the Food Bank. “I don’t know what I’d do without the support from the Food Bank for diapers and baby food” she said. With another little one soon to be born, Lisa felt extra appreciative that she has somewhere to come to provide such practical support for herself and her kids.
