Central Virginia is home to more than 193,000 people who struggle with hunger every day. They are our neighbors, our colleagues, friends, classmates and many of them are faced with unthinkable choices all the time. Paying for heat or for groceries, going to the doctor or getting their car fixed, paying rent or the utilities bill. With budgets maxed out and not enough income to cover it all, these are unthinkable choices that hardworking families shouldn’t be forced to face.
Like one of our clients Charlotte, who shared:
“One of my children has a disability and the medical bills never stop piling up. Even working two jobs there are still nights we don’t get to eat dinner. It breaks my heart every time I put them to bed and can hear their stomachs growling.”
