“I can choose the food that fits my family’s needs”

Shawnovia and her husband are a working family with two school-aged children. Shawnovia also struggles with Lupus.

Because of flair-ups and resulting doctors appointments, Shawnovia sometimes is forced to miss several days of work.

On these days, she does not get paid.

She tells us, “Loaves & Fishes helps working families have that extra support.

As for me, I can pick and choose the food that fits my family’s needs.

We can use the money we would have needed for groceries and pay the rent, utilities, or clothing and school supplies for our kids and still have a daily, healthy diet.”
