Brittany and Clint

As a mom, it makes me feel bad when I can’t provide my sons with things other families seem to take for granted—like holiday meals.” 

Holiday meals are expensive and they’re not in our budget. I knew we would eat on those days, but I was planning on serving grilled cheese sandwiches or spaghetti. I’ve never been able to buy a turkey.

This past year, as the holidays began to roll around, Brittany wasn’t sure her family would be able to celebrate in the traditional way. Even though both her and her husband work—he has his college degree and works for a local bank, and she manages a movie theater—they still struggle to make ends meet.

They stretch every dollar to make sure their two boys have enough to eat—even if that sometimes means going without heat and special holiday meals. So, when Brittany discovered the mobile pantry near her home was distributing complete Thanksgiving meals, including an entire turkey, she was overjoyed.
