Katrina Miller and her two youngest children Rylee (3) and Lilly (2) biked their way to the Great Plains Food Bank Mobile Food Pantry on a recent stop in Halliday to bring food home for the full family of five. Katrina lives with her husband Joshua and their three children.
Despite being a fun pastime for this family, their bike ride to the mobile food pantry distribution was completely out of necessity as their family car recently broke down and they are short the funds to have it repaired. They are looking for a new car, but financially it has not been the right time for them. To compound their struggles, Joshua, who works construction where work can be seasonal, was recently laid off from his job.
For now, he has been staying home but hopes to return to the job soon. Until then, the mobile food pantry has been helpful to keep them afloat during difficult times. Public transportation and rides from friends have been helpful for them to get their necessities.
Having the extra support when they are in need has made a world of difference and the mobile food pantry has helped to offset some of the costs of going through life.
“I really appreciate the help and hard work they do to help families out,” Katrina said. “A lot of people go through troubled times and need the extra help.”
