“My fiancé and I both work hard. Last month, he had an emergency medical issue that required several nights at the hospital, and we were forced to rely on just my income. Like many young families, we don’t have much savings. What we had, we spent on medical bills and medication. We were in real trouble with almost nothing left to buy food for my two children, pay for gas to get to work, or pay the bills.
Using the pantry allowed us to get through this rough spot. We could not have done it without their help. Asking for help isn’t easy, but I don’t know what we’d do without them.”

"A young woman in Cambridge came to the library to fill a bag with fresh food for her elderly neighbors who were struggling financially, had delicate digestive systems, and could not make it to the library on their own. She reported that Comfort Food Community’s Farm-2-Library program has significantly improved her neighbors’ overall health and well-being."
The program has also drawn a lot of kids and teens to our libraries. In Argyle, director Faith St. John shared, “I think the kids who come in and get excited to grab a snack are my favorite part of the program. We have story time after our delivery, so they walk out with an apple or a few beans. It is very special.” "
