It's really nice to see my kids come home and eat without having to ration them. The extra money has enabled me to move out from a bad situation.
Janice, Markus & Nathan
The extra money means that I can pay my rent, without skipping meals and stressing. We have kept warm this winter and made a veggie garden. One of my boys has food allergies, his health, his skin has been awesome.
We are older people and I can't work above 15 hrs for health reasons and hubby is long term unemployed with a number of disorders. I can watch my grands in the holiday and buy them lunch out.
