Sharing a heartfelt story at Laguna Food Pantry

There is no typical visitor to the Laguna Food Pantry, especially in the current economic climate where more people are finding themselves needing assistance for the first time. A woman, who recently relocated to California with her pre-teen son, visited the Pantry after the job she had expected to have fell through. Despite hesitations toward visiting the Pantry for the first time, she knew she needed help. Upon being welcomed by a volunteer greeter, she expressed her reluctance to accept food, feeling that she was taking it away from someone who needed it even more. The greeter reassured her that the Pantry was there to help anyone facing food insecurity. As they continued to talk, tears started streaming down her face as she was overwhelmed with gratitude for the groceries, kindness, help and relief.
