Bright Christmas bows decorate 52 year old Eva’s pickup truck. She was the first in line at a Food Bank mobile pantry in Richland Parish.
Eva told us that she was excited to receive some extra help with groceries, as she sometimes has trouble making ends meet. She is the primary caretaker for her 8 grandchildren. Her grandchildren range in age from 2 year old twins to 19 years old, and Eva spends a lot of time trying to make sure the kids have everything they need.
Volunteers filled Eva’s car with fresh produce, meat, milk and sweet potato fries. She and 225 other families in Richland Parish will have a brighter holiday season thanks to your support. Every $10 donated to the Food Bank will help provide 55 meals to our neighbors in need.
“In this time, it’s been truly hard,” said Eva. “It’s such a blessing to get this help. Thank you!”
