On a Monday prior to Thanksgiving we got a call from a client who had not been to the pantry in four or five years. “Carly” explained that she was desperately in need of food and asked if she would be able to come again for help.  She was told to come right away as we were distributing food that morning. After receiving her regular food order, she was asked if she needed help with special food for a Thanksgiving meal.   She said “Yes”.  Carly was then led to the area where the special Thanksgiving food was being distributed.
