The mother of my student who receives the Cambridge Cares snacks and I were talking the other day. I asked her if the snacks were helping her family. She was in tears as she replied to me saying that I could never know how helpful the snacks were. Her food stamps were recently cut and her rent was raised $20 a month. She told me that these hardships had made it hard for her to supply three meals-a-day for her two daughters each weekend. She told me the snacks keep her girls from going hungry. She asked me to extend her thanks to you and the program.
Thank you for providing this essential program to our needy Cambridge families. It is hard for a child to learn when they are hungry.
