2017 Feed a Family
Do you think you could eat on just $5 a day? It’s more difficult than you might imagine.
Just think of the impact your gift can make on hunger in Northwest Ohio. As you know, for many people, surviving on $5 a day isn’t a temporary challenge — it’s a way of life.
Just ask Kim. A few years ago, her husband Pete left his job to go overseas with the military. When he came back, he couldn’t find work.
Kim is a massage therapist who owns her own business but it just wasn’t enough to feed a family of four. After struggling for a while, they applied for SNAP. But then their benefits were cut.
“We lost $29 a month — which is a lot when you’re living on practically nothing,” says Kim. “It was at that point that we started using the food bank. It allowed me to fill the gap the cut left. and make sure everyone in my family got enough to eat.”
Because of your generosity, a member of the Toledo Northwest Ohio Food Bank network could be there for Kim and her family.
