Your generosity has a powerful effect on the people we serve together. Take Muanda, a mother of four, who is very moved by the kindness of neighbors like you. Before she learned about Fresh For All free produce markets, she struggled to put food on the table – especially on weekends and holidays when the kids were out of school.
“Because of this important supplement to her tight food
budget, Muanda no longer needs to choose between paying the bills and putting food on the table.”
“Thank you so much for your help,” she said during a visit to her local Philabundance produce distribution. As a professional caregiver, Muanda wasn’t making enough money. Even after taking on additional shifts at work to earn extra income, she still struggled to afford groceries.
Because she had no immediate family to provide the support she needed, Muanda was so relieved to find outside help. And it’s all because of you.
Recalling her first visit to the Philabundance Fresh For All distribution, Muanda expressed her deepest gratitude for the wide variety of fresh fruits and vegetables she was able to bring home to feed her family. She said she and her kids were especially excited about the tomatoes, mangoes and bananas.
Because of this important supplement to her tight food budget, Muanda no longer needs to choose between paying the bills and putting food on the table.
“It’s helpful to use the money I save on groceries to buy other things we need,” said Muanda. The truth is, the impact of your gifts simply can’t be overstated – especially during this season of joy and celebration.
