team has been
taking its compassion on the road, delivering food boxes along with its home visiting services.
“We want to show our families we're here for them, and trying to help them stay safe at home,” said Kim V., a Home Visitor. “By bringing food to them, just a few of us are going out – instead of 30 families." She added that the home deliveries reduce one stress for single moms, who would have to go out with one or more kids.
Staff members pick
up the food boxes at the
South Benton Food Pantry
sort them with each family in mind, and add necessities like household and hygiene products. Families will be able to count on one full-size box each month, and a supplemental box two weeks later.
