Thank You for Helping Evelyn Access Nutritious Food!

It was a few years ago when Evelyn finally took her friend’s advice and made her first trip to North Helpline Food Bank, the Food Lifeline partner located near her Seattle home.

Both Sides of the Giving Coin

Uri* has a good job and two young sons that he has custody over most of the time. When he and his wife separated a year ago, things were rough for a long time. Not only was there an emotional side of the separation, but going from two incomes to one was hard. Uri burned through his savings and fell behind on some bills for just a couple of months, but that was enough to start wiping out his paycheck, before it even came, while he has been working to get caught up again.
