Sarah a single mother of two came to Knights Table for the first time by herself. She was really struggling with no longer being able to support her family – she had never needed help before and coming to ask for aid was more than she could handle. As Sarah said afterwards, she was extremely nervous during her first visit as she didn’t know what to expect and was afraid she would not qualify for assistance. But the staff was patient, kind and understanding. She went through the intake and was approved to use the foodbank and other programs. That day she received an emergency food basket and then loaded up her shopping cart with cereal, juice, tuna, soup, pasta, milk, bread and even fresh kale that was donated by a local farm. It was enough to supplement her family for an entire month. She broke down in tears, as she thanked the volunteer who helped her that day. She said, “I couldn’t believe how nice everyone was, and that this food was available to us during such a difficult time.
