Witherite noted that with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, more family members are home during the day, creating a need for more food. Global supply chain issues have also driven up the cost of food while reducing availability in stores. She added that before the pandemic and the resulting economic challenges, food insecurity in North Texas was already above the national average.
“Deciding whether to buy groceries, pay for medicine, or where to live is a decision no one should ever have to face,” Witherite said. “Not to mention trying to make ends meet with the added burden of things that are completely out of our control. This is the reality for many families in our community today. We are here to serve the community and help when and where needed.
