Layna James remembers when she was a little girl and money was short, her mother could always count on the Regional Food Bank to help her family make it to the end of the month. Now a wife and mom herself, Layna knows that when she and her husband Michael need a hand, they can still count on good people like you and the help they can find at Our Daily Bread, a Regional Food Bank partner in Stillwater.

But that’s not the only way you’re helping the James family. During the school year, their older son takes part in the Regional Food Bank’s Backpack Program through his elementary school.

Layna and Michael are very grateful for the help you give them, especially because they know you’re helping so many other people, too.

Even when food is running low, Layna says, “I try not to come here unless we absolutely have to. This place helps so many people. I want there to be enough for everyone.”

“I’m so happy the Regional Food Bank is here for everyone who can’t afford to feed their families all the time,” she says. “Without them and the people who give to them, most of us would be starving.

“I’m just glad we’re lucky enough to have that help, you know?”

Thank you for doing so much to help families like Layna and Michael’s. Please continue your generous support while the Food for Kids Match Campaign will double your gift!
