MFB Peoria partners with Moms Who Care
The grant allowed the group to purchase two scratch-and-dent refrigerators from Sherman's in Peoria. The local appliance and furniture store waived the delivery charge, another blessing to the Moms Who Care.
Now, the group can have perishable food available to students while they shop in the Moms Who Care store, which includes clothing and hygiene items.
Moms Who Care also provide perishable food to students to take home. They care for about 100 students at the high school.
Recently, bananas were an item that they received from MFB.
"One student had never eaten a banana before and wanted to try one. I can't tell you the number of students that grabbed a banana to eat right then or for lunch later in the day," says Gayle. "I felt so happy we could do this for them."
"Moms Who Care at Limestone High School started receiving food in 2016 and were the first school food pantry for MFB Peoria," says Monica Scheuer, Executive Director of MFB Peoria. "We are so glad to be able to infuse healthier items into teenagers' diets via Moms Who Care."
