A Helping Hand to Make Ends Meet


Posted on December 20, 2018

Selima* earned enough at her job to put her income over the limit for food stamps, but she was still having trouble affording enough food every month.

Selima decided to meet with a Navigator during his weekly site visit. The Navigator found a food pantry just half a mile from her apartment. Together, they called the pantry to confirm the days and times it was open and what documents were needed to access the pantry. Selima was able to go the next day and get food to get her through the month. She continues to use the pantry when she needs a little extra help.
