Island Harvest’s mobile food pantry gives Thanksgiving meals to those in need in Brentwood
BRENTWOOD – Seniors and residents dealing with food insecurity headed to the Brentwood Public Library on Tuesday to collect food as part of Island Harvest’s mobile food pantry.
“The same thing that I went through and a lot of people go through. You have a job, then you don’t have a job. then you feel embarrassed but there’s nothing to be embarrassed about, because once you get help you can help other people move on from this,” said Nancy Velasquez, who had once received assistance from Island Harvest and, after getting back on her feet, is now volunteering to help others stay free from hunger.
In conjunction with Island Harvest, the Public Brentwood Library offers food for those in need in the community twice a month.
