At Even Stevens, we partner with all kind of organizations from domestic violence to addiction recovery, elderly and hospice care to afterschool programs. We can talk about them a million times over, but it will never truly tell you what they do for our communities.
Hearing first hand the stories of the people who have been directly impacted by the work of our nonprofit partners has had a tremendous impact on us, and we wanted to pass it along. These stories are why we do what we do; these stories fuel us to continue to eat to give.
In this post, we share a story from Even Steven's Richardson, TX non-profit partner Minnies Food Pantry.
Darcel is a client of Minnie’s Food Pantry. She shares her story of raising her 3 children while continuing her education in order to build a better future for her family. “I work full time and balance my school schedule around my work schedule. I have 3 kids at home. Minnie’s Food Pantry has helped me provide for my children in terms of food and encouragement and never made me feel inferior. Minnie’s Food Pantry has helped us make it through tough times. They provided us with meat, fruits, vegetables, and food to take home and cook. I used to worry about how I would be able to support my children even with a full-time job. Thanks to the help I received from Minnie’s Food Pantry
