When Life Threw Chrisje and Thomas a Curveball, Their Local Food Pantry Helped Them Feed Their Family

John Lennon once sang, “Life is what happens while you are busy making other plans.” This couldn’t be truer for Chrisje and Thomas. They planned for Chrisje to work while Thomas finished school. But their plans were turned upside-down when Chrisje’s back gave out and she was unable to work.

With no income coming in and forced to live off their savings, Chrisje and Thomas reached out for help from a local food pantry. That help made all the difference.

Thomas is now in medical school and the family’s future is bright.
