“I'm 74 Years young and have been coming here for quite some time. I live alone and like so many my age, am trying to survive on my limited income and live independent. Thank goodness for Entiat Valley Community Services and these caring people, who have helped me find resources and services to remain in my home, such as CHORE. I would go hungry if the food bank was not available. I personally appreciate everything I receive.”

“I started crying the first time I went to get help. I could not believe how much food is given and presents. The staff gave me a hug and welcomed me, just like I was part of a family. I did not feel shame and they uplifted my spirits. I enjoy going to the food bank, volunteers treat you like people. Thank you all."

"I am 25 years old and have 2 children. I live with my mother since my divorce and my unemployment ran out. I have been trying to find employment but it has been a struggle. My mother has raised us by herself and making ends meet was always an issue. I was in hopes that I would not be in this situation when I got married, but trying to make ends meet and no income has forced me to move back home. We still have hardships and are still struggling to make ends meet, but the food bank and its many services has made a big difference and life a little easier. There are a lot of people who need help, just like us or worse, and when you don't have a penny, the food bank and EVCSFB sure makes it easier to deal with the struggles and putting food on the table."
