“So many times food insecurity comes from a life event, a crisis,” said podcast host CJ Johnson.
It’s one of the reasons the Food Bank started the Food is Love, Share the Love storytelling campaign.
The team made it a point to share stories which showed the reality of why people turn to food assistance in the three rivers region.
One person the Food Bank spoke to was Amy Salmon.
Salmon was living a normal life in New Eagle, until her doctor diagnosed her with cancer in 2018.
In order to get treatment, Salmon had to quit her job.
