Also, a volunteer and client of Providence Regina House has graciously shared the story of his struggle and how it has led him to rely on the food bank. You can find it featured on the Feeding America Blog. It's an eye-opening read and a testament to the fact that there are many faces of hunger, as well as to the vital importance of our local food banks.
