Louella receives food from the People’s Pantry, a Partner Agency that relies on resources from the Food Bank.
Although she receives food assistance, she also helps others at her church, in her neighborhood and in her daily routine.
“Some people won’t ask you for food, but when you see there is a need,
you do what you can. I feel better when I can make a difference in somebody’s life.”
