Randy and Barb Give Thanks and Give Back

     “The food really helps us and other people on fixed incomes,” Randy says of Matthew 25/Flat Rock Food Pantry Ministry.

        Randy, 70, and his wife, Barbara, 69, began visiting the pantry, which partners with Mid-South Food Bank to provide healthy food in Flat Rock, when their daughter and grandchildren moved in with them. 
  “The Pantry helped tremendously because [our daughter] was not working for a while so Barb and I were taking care of everybody by ourselves,” Randy says.

        The couple sometimes receives Mid-South Food Bank Senior Boxes, which provide healthy food appropriate for older adults' diets. They especially appreciate the frozen lean protein that comes in the senior boxes. 

“I like chicken because I can cook it in so many different recipes,” Barbara says.

Because they’re so grateful for the food they receive, Barbara and Randy became regular volunteers at the Pantry. Barb helps fill bags with food, and Randy helps move and arrange bulk items. 

     “At our age, we're not always able to volunteer at some things, but we can help here,” Barb says. “It feels good to help people and see their faces when they get their food. This is like family — it's a part of our lives.”

     Thank you for joining Barb and Randy in supporting the health and well-being of our communities by partnering with the Mid-South Food Bank.
