“This food will help out a lot.”


“Nutritious food is important to have with young children,” said Kaprenai, who we met at an East Texas Food Bank distribution recently. “This food will help out a lot,” she told us.

Kaprenai has a busy household, with six children ranging from 4 to 14 years old. She said that the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic have impacted her family.

“I’m not working right now and my husband is not working as much as he used to,” she said. “Our income just dropped suddenly.”

Kaprenai said that she was able to find out about the distribution by calling the East Texas Food Bank.

“They told me when it was and I plan to keep coming when I can,” she said.

Kaprenai is appreciative of the help she received, and wants to give thanks to those that help make the distributions possible.

“Thank you for coming out, helping the community, providing and giving back,” she said. “My family is grateful for it.”
