Meet Lathan – the adorable artist behind Loaves & Fishes’ new Holiday Card!

Lathan is 5 years old and a kindergartner in CMS. He is the artist behind this year’s new Loaves & Fishes’ Holiday Card. Lathan lives with his grandmother Della, who has raised him since he was a year old. Della recently lost her job and even with Medicaid and Medicare, she does not have enough money to pay the bills and buy groceries. She was grateful to visit a Loaves & Fishes pantry and choose nutritious groceries to prepare meals for Lathan and herself. While waiting, Lathan drew the snowman featured on our new holiday card. He was also happy to pick out his own cereal – cornflakes!
