Richelle

From Colorado Springs

Story Type: People We Serve

Programs Used: Mobile Market

How We Helped: Nutritious Food

The first time Richelle stopped by one of our Mobile Market Distributions, she was shocked by the amount and type of food she was able to take home. “I received chicken, pork, vegetables, fruit, grains and milk from Care and Share,” she said. A mom to two growing elementary school kids, she told us her children (surprisingly) love the fruits and the vegetables. Richelle is a pre-school teacher in Colorado Springs. She and her husband rely on her income, and oftentimes, they are living paycheck to paycheck. She told us the food she receives from our Mobile Market helps with lowering the growing bill. They are able to focus on paying the rent and utilities. “I want my kids to know that we will do anything for them. I don’t want to them to see us struggling. This helps a lot.”
