"I was a mess"

Debra Way had a life that she was proud of.

Working as a general manager at a restaurant, her future husband and her were planning the rest of their lives together. Quickly tough times struck when her future husband was diagnosed with stage four cancer and died soon thereafter, her father passed away and she struggled with the loss of a close pet. She found herself in need of help in the midst of a battle with chronic depression and suicide.

Food assistance through the Great Plains Food Bank partner agency network has provided her a means to get by.

Trunk 'n' treating with the Great Plains Food Bank
