Food is Life

“It keeps us happy. It keeps us protected with food. It helps us live.” That’s 9-year-old ‘Angel’s’ description of Nourish Pierce County Food Bank in Puyallup/Graham. She and her mom ‘Nicole’ visit the food bank regularly, since Nicole suffered a series of setbacks, including severe depression and a seizure disorder that made it impossible for her to work. “We live on $1,300 per month, and $880 of that goes to rent. Without this food, life would be a real struggle. Now I never have to wake up and worry about not knowing what the family is going to eat.”
