Your gifts make a real difference for families facing hunger throughout North Dakota and Clay County, Minnesota. Families like Benny and Ashley’s.
With four children, two under 3, Ashley and Benny have their hands full. While Ashley stays at home with the younger children, Benny works full-time in a nearby community.
It wasn’t until recently, the family found themselves in need of help. A few years ago, Benny experienced several bouts of long-term illnesses making it difficult for him to work at his manual labor job. Ultimately, he had to make a career shift, requiring additional education.
Benny and Ashley are both grateful for the bachelor’s degree he earned, giving him greater access to higher paying jobs. But the family is struggling to get caught up financially. Increased costs of living and the costs associated with Benny’s daily commute stretch their budget even more.
“There’s a sense of falling behind,” Ashley explains.
Thankfully, Benny and Ashley can stop by the Garrison Area Resource Center, supplied by the Great Plains Food Bank. On this trip they received a food box filled with fresh fruits, vegetables, meat and even a treat for the kids!
“I think this is a really good help for the community,” Ashley says gratefully.
Thank you for helping make this resource, as well as many more, available for thousands of individuals and families throughout North Dakota and Clay County, Minnesota!
Ashley’s daughter couldn’t wait to eat some of the nutritious food the family received from Garrison Area Resource Center, supplied by the Great Plains Food Bank.
