You're helping children like tara's thrive
“This really, really helps.”
Tara is the proud mother of four children, ages 9, 6, 4, and 2. She works hard to provide for them, and equally hard at teaching her children kindness and respect for their neighbors.
Even though Tara works six days a week to support her family, she’s often forced to cut back on her food spending so she can pay for other househould necessities.
“I decide which bills to pay each month, then figure out how much I have left for food, fuel and diapers,” Tara says.
This summer, Tara will have the added expense of making up for free or reduced-price meals her children can usually eat in school, plus the cost of additional childcare.
That’s why Tara is so grateful she can turn to the Great Plains Food Bank Mobile Food Pantry to supplement her grocery budget. We had the honor of meeting Tara and all four of her children on a recent visit.
Tara wanted to express her gratitude for your generosity and helping her children thrive this summer with full plates of nutritious food.
“Thank you,” Tara says to donors like you. “This really, really helps.”
You’re making healthy food accessible for children and families across North Dakota and Clay County, Minnesota. Together, we are helping build healthier communities and a brighter future for us all.
