Anita and her husband have five children aged from 7 months to 10 years old. In the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic, her husband lost his job. During this unprecedented crisis, our team continued to call participants to follow up and address any new concerns they might be having. One of these calls revealed that Anita was running out of food. Our team referred her to the West Side Campaign Against Hunger food pantry, and she was able to pick up for her family.
