As a single mom, Samantha tries to ensure her kids have the best possible life. But it’s not easy.
“I work really hard every week and all the money goes to bills. With what little I have extra, it goes to the kids,” she said.
Which is why Samantha visits a food pantry near her home.
“The food pantry has helped us a lot since I’m the only income. We get a box of food that comes with meat, canned food, dairy products and even snacks for the kids. It helps when we need it,” she said.
