Amy, a mother of two, was fleeing a domestic violence situation.”
Her husband threatened to take the children away because he said she was homeless and did not have any way to obtain food for the children. Amy was able to secure an apartment with assistance from a community housing program, but it used the last of her money. Amy’s income from working full-time cleaning homes made her only eligible to receive $50.00 per month in Food Share. While that did help, it was not enough to feed her family the entire month. With additional food assistance from a Hunger Coalition partner food pantry, Amy was able to feed her children healthy foods while also providing a safe home.
