South Wood County Hunger Coalition

GOAL:  Community members have access to food.

SUCCESS STORY

A new guest stopped in to sign up for a meal off a referral from the United Way’s 211 line. I gave her one of our cards so she would have the phone number for the future…but she told me she does not always have access to a phone. I assured her if she could not call in her reservation, we would not turn her away. She started to cry and told me she had never been in this position before and she was overwhelmed. I gave her a shoulder squeeze and told her reaching out to the United Way was a smart first step and coming to The Neighborhood Table was a great second step. This story is why we do what we do!!
