West Carroll Parish - Kevin & Renee

Kevin and Renee drove an hour from West Carroll Parish to the Food Bank in Monroe to get help for their family of five.

Kevin is a heavy equipment operator, and his hours have been cut in half. Renee had just started classes to pursue a career in nursing when the pandemic began, and has been able to continue her education online.

“It’s been hard on the kids being out of school; it’s not like summer vacation where we can go places. It’s hard to keep them fed too,” said Renee. “It’s awesome that people are coming together during this time of need.”
