Rachel’s Story

Janie Gianotsos Faces of Hunger, Newsy


Rachel watches her two granddaughters while her daughter works the night shift at a nearby hospital.  Her partner works for $9 an hour and she receives $150 every two weeks while she looks for part-time work.  Rent is high and Rachel and her partner struggle to pay the bills. The help she receives from Project Access Resource Centers, a member agency of Food Bank of the Rockies, allows her to provide healthy food for her granddaughters when they come home from school.  This food has been a big help for Rachel and her family.
