BATON ROUGE, La. – Alone and destitute, Amy could barely feed her children.
A half jar of peanut butter, box of noodles, and a little milk was all she had in the house to feed her two young children—and no money to buy more.
Heartbroken and afraid, this single mother didn’t know where to turn. “What do I feed them?” she asked. “I couldn’t make ends meet. No electricity. The water would get cut off. I’d have to go to a neighbor’s house to use their bathtub just to bathe my kids.”
Thanks to your support, Amy received food and supplies to feed her family—and today she is back on her feet and volunteering her time to help other families like hers who are in crisis.
In fact, we found Amy’s story so inspiring—of how partners like you helped bring relief just in time for a family in need—that we asked her to contribute a favorite family recipe (Amy’s Cheesy Chicken Poofs) for our cookbook, Bless This Food, featuring a collection of recipes from the U.S. and around the world to bless the impoverished.
As we enter this Thanksgiving season, every little bit counts toward helping families who have been hit hard by poverty, hunger, disaster and sickness. Please, consider giving a gift to help provide a lifeline of relief for those who need it most.
With a $100 gift or more today, you can receive a copy of Bless This Food, a cookbook filled with recipes from around the world, inspired by the heartwarming stories of impoverished families who are rising up out of poverty!
