"It's important to me that my kids eat a lot of fruits and vegetables."

Perla's Story

If I bring home apples or bananas from the Food Bank, my kids get excited. Some months we have produce and some months we don't. It's important to me that my kids eat a lot of fruits and vegetables. 

People don't have the gas money to go to town to buy their groceries. The nearest grocery store is in Green Valley. It's far and gas is so expensive; we can't go often. And if you don't have gas, you just have to stay here. 

But Amado is a peaceful community. I want my kids to grow up here. 

Perla is a volunteer and client at the Community Food Bank in Amado. She lives in Amado with her mother and her five children.
