For several months and through two of the food bank’s programs, Erica got the food she needed to feed herself and her children. She worked seasonally at H&R Block but found the stable employment she needed in the place that first gave her hope.
Today, she works with the York County Food Bank as the Coordinator to the Clearing House Food Pantry Hotline. With each phone call and every visit, she shares a bit of her own story for those who are in the same position she was not too long ago.
Ten years after moving to York, she’s found the bright future she longed for. Her son is a college student and her daughter a sophomore at William Penn Senior High School.
“My kids encourage me to share that story,” she says. “We were empowered by the programs that are out there. I hope others aren’t afraid to ask for that help.”
