Fear and Hope
Currently, times are tough for some people and Denise understands just that. Denise, 54 from Kennett, MO showed up for a mobile food pantry one rainy Saturday evening in search for some extra food for around her house.
Her income is small and doesn’t cover paying the bills and buying enough food for the month. She receives SNAP benefits to purchase food, but the amount was cut recently to $46 a month. This makes her worried about the future.
“It’s definitely not enough,” Denise proclaimed.
Even with her qualms about the cuts, she hopes they’ll raise the benefit.
With the rain coming down as she stood in line, she was still very thankful that mobile food pantries show up around her area.
“I appreciate them and they help out a lot of people,” she said.
Denise heard about the mobile food pantry through radio and rode up with a few friends who were also in attendance for the event.
