6/3/16 – Like every month I’m here to get my food box. It is not easy and is very difficult to also get here in order to obtain some help with food. However Yuma is not a very growing town in economy, but (is) in growth. More people and less help for everyone. Therefore on behalf of this here plate, I am thankful for your support to my family and to all who are her for the same reasons, to put food on the table. God bless you and I hope help comes more our way to benefit all. Thank you very much!!

6/1/16 – I am very thankful for this food bank. I served 4 years in the United States Marine Corps and the transition for me from the military to civilian (life) has been the hardest. Trying to find a stable job as well as making sure all the bills are paid on time is really stressful! Not having money for food after all those expenses is very difficult at time, this is why I am very thankful for this food bank. It is because of you and all of the volunteers that I will not go hungry today.

Our family income was reduced by more than half the amount. The Yuma Community Food Bank had been a God send to us, to fill our pantry. What a Blessing!!
