Client Story: Ernest Barra

October 22, 2008 § 1 Comment

For the last six months, Ernest Barra has been coming once-a-month to the Catholic Charitities (one of our 355 Partner Agencies) for nutritious items that are expensive for him to purchase. He likes to share his food with friends and family members, including his aunt. “She doesn’t have any money,” Barra said. “Her old man passed away and she barely gets $500 in Social Security.”

Fortunately, Barra relies on the food pantry being open, even if he uses it sporadically. “Once in a while I’ll have a little money left and I figure, I won’t come here because I’ll leave it for somebody who really needs it, you know? I come here when my cupboards are bare.”

Our Partner Agencies distribute food and grocery products to clients throughout our 21 county service area. Some provide assistance in the form of bags of groceries.  Others serve hot meals in a soup kitchen or provide meals as part of treatment programs.
