An open letter from a MOH pantry recipient

An open letter from a MOH pantry recipient

I’m writing today to share how Meals of Hope helped me change my life — and to ask you to support others like me.

A couple of years ago I went through some really tough financial times. I was laid off from my job, had some unexpected medical bills, and literally did not know how I would get my next meal. I was very depressed.

I heard about a local organization that gives free food every week at Lely Presbyterian Church*. I went to the church the next Monday afternoon and saw the Meals of Hope truck and people were setting up tables and putting out the food. I was embarrassed to find myself in this position as I had always paid my own way, but now, I needed help. I quietly got into line and waited for my turn to select food.

For the next several weeks my family and I relied almost solely on Meals of Hope for food, which allowed me get back on my feet financially.

My family and I now find ourselves in a much more positive situation. I have a job, we have a roof over our heads, and my children don’t have to wonder about where they will get their next meal.

I thank Meals of Hope for all they have done for me and my family.

Sincerely,
Tom
