Sherri Farrington visited a recent stop of the Great Plains Food Bank Mobile Food Pantry in Hazen with a lot on her mind. Her first priority was doing what she can to feed her household.
Sherri is a widow and has had temporary guardianship of her four-year-old grandson, who is autistic and non-verbal, for the last two years. She is not able to work due to her own disabilities. The two are living in a house along with her daughter-in-law and her grandson’s other grandmother. They all work together to look after Sherri’s grandson and do the best they can to get by.
With so many mouths to feed and surrounding by difficult circumstances, Sherri has found the mobile food pantry to be a valuable resource for them. She attends the distributions each time she is able when it comes to the area.
Sherri doesn’t want to think about the situation they may be in without it.
“Without their help, where would we be?” she asks rhetorically regarding the mobile food pantry. “We are very thankful for these people.”
