Mohauna had a career working as a caregiver, but now that she’s older and unable to lift anything heavy, she’s no longer able to do her job. She also suffers from rheumatoid arthritis and has had five surgeries to try to repair the damage, but the surgeries have been ineffective.
Her son recently moved back in with her to help her out, but they aren’t able to make ends meet and their savings have all but run out.
That’s why Mohauna is glad she can come to the Moore Food & Resource Center — a program owned and operated by the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma — so she and her son don’t have to worry about where they’ll get their next meal.
“I never imagined I’d have to rely on a food bank to eat, but I’m so very grateful it’s here,” Mohauna says. “If I didn’t have this place to come to for food, I can’t even imagine where I’d be. I’d probably be living on the street not able to pay my rent.”
Fortunately, Mohauna doesn’t have to worry about that, and she’s so appreciative of everything you do for her and her family.
“Now, at least, I can count on having food in my house. You never know what’s going to happen in your life,” she says. “This place makes me feel welcome. I just can’t thank you enough.”
