How We Helped: Food to Feed Their Family
Mary is a proud grandma to four grandkids. After retiring from her career as a music teacher, she started taking care of them often – to help support her daughter and, as a widow, the kids’ company brings her joy. When the COVID-19 outbreak hit, her grandchildren stayed inside with her more than usual, which meant more meals.
Our Mobile Market stops by Mary’s neighborhood on the south west side of Colorado Springs every other week. While we pass out food bags to individuals and families in a drive thru style event, the community center we partner with provides additional resources at the same time.
Mary told us she loves that she doesn’t have to travel far to get to our Mobile Market, which makes it convenient and easy for her to get food for her family.
