About This Campaign

Amanda’s cupboard is bare. “I was down to a can of soup, a bottle of ketchup and half a loaf of bread, which had to last me and my 12 year old son for five more days,” said Amanda, a 35 year old single mom.

She shared her story at United Food Bank’s Help Yourself Food Co-op one Friday morning. “I’m not used to asking for help. I didn’t want something for free, just affordable and healthy food, some meats and vegetables. I’ve always been used to helping others and it’s been so hard to ask for help. When I brought the food home, my 12 year old son was so excited. And to hear him say, ‘Mom, I’m full’ for the first time in as long as I can remember.” 

I can’t imagine Amanda’s heartache at hearing her son’s stomach growl with hunger. As Mother’s Day approaches, I am reminded of moms, like Amanda, who quietly struggle to feed their families.

    Dedication In Honor of: Erika Zblewski
    No child should go hungry. No mother should have to hear her child cry in hunger. My mother sacrificed a great deal to keep us safe, feed and clothed. She is my hero. She often went without to ensure her children had what they needed. She is a loving mother, beautiful woman and amazing friend. I happily give this donation in her honor - Happy Mother’s Day Mama.
