“Thank you from the bottom of my heart.”
Starla enjoys taking care of the people around her, whether she is cooking up a hearty meal for her family or running errands for her older neighbors. Thanks to you, she’s also able to access nutritious food to help keep her healthy.
We met Starla at a Great Plains Food Bank Mobile Food Pantry distribution in Williston, where she received a weeks’ worth of nutritious food.
Starla’s income comes through Social Security disability, but she shares that it doesn’t stretch to meet all her needs. She is relieved she can supplement her groceries with the healthy food items she receives from the Great Plains Food Bank.
Starla is the proud mother of one daughter and six grandchildren. Her son-in-law recently lost his job, so she also picks up food for her daughter’s family as well.
“This is an awesome program,” Starla says of the Great Plains Food Bank’s mobile food pantry.
Starla shared that her compromised health has made it more difficult for her to access healthy food since the pandemic. She’s noticed a similar struggle for many of her older neighbors.
“If this wasn’t here, we’d have to make a choice of meds or food,” she explains.
Thanks to you and your gifts, Starla and her neighbors have ongoing and reliable access to healthy food, including Starla’s favorite: fresh vegetables.
“Thank you from the bottom of my heart,” Starla says to generous donors like you.
