The following is a brief testimonial from one of our neighbors in Greenwood who utilizes the Greenwood Food Resource Center. It can be easy to make assumptions about why someone may need to access free food at a Food Bank, but this person’s story demonstrates that any of us could find ourselves susceptible to food insecurity.
I’m probably not your idea of a typical food bank client. I’m well-educated, and an experienced employee. However, a combination of circumstances, along with health challenges, made me seek public assistance, including from the food bank. I’m currently unemployed.
