Todays Story

I am a retired senior (like many), all of us most likely 90% have very limited income. Food Bank is a blessing for me. The employees, volunteers that are here are very nice and don’t look down on us, which is very nice. Thank you & God Bless.

5/11/16 - Well a year and a half ago I met a guy and fell in love with him. He had addictions. I felt me not having any I could help him. He ended up have drugs at my home and because it was my home I lost everything I own. I was on housing and was very blessed with what I had. Ever since a few months ago, I was homeless and sleeping in my car. Just recently got enrolled in school to get back on my feet.

5/11/16 – My name is Patty. All my life I’ve managed to take care of myself. At the age of 69 I got very sick with several serious things including Steven Johnson Syndrome. I’m told I was at death’s door 3 times. I was in the hospital 6 different times & in the nursing home (for) 4 months. I’m doing much better now, but my money is gone. I can’t find work and I’m struggling. I live alone, have no family here and am so grateful I found the food bank 6 months ago. Thank you Food Bank.

Thank you guys.

5/10/16 – Than you for this donation of food. With rent so high in Yuma and b-cuz (because) we work we don’t receive food stamps, food is sometimes hard to purchase. No money left at the end of the day for food. This donation really helps.

5/3/16 - My husband recently lost his job. Since there are times we have to shoes between food and paying bills, we don’t always have money for food. The thing(s) we get from the Yuma Food Bank help us when we have nothing. Thank you very much. I cannot express what it means to me that there are people who care.
