In 1999, Leslie was acting as caretaker for her mother and was having a tough time making ends meet. She started visiting a local food pantry and senior center and hasn’t stopped since. Her SSI and food stamps help, but without the food boxes she picks up a couple times per month, she wouldn’t get fresh produce and healthy items offered at the pantry. Leslie values this home away from home more than words can express and spends much of her time volunteering and giving back to the people who help her so much.
