When food stamps run out or clients are waiting for paychecks they come to WRC for staples such as beans, rice, peanut butter, cereal, mac & cheese and other canned food items.

One client was noted to say “My kids are little vacuum cleaners.  They just inhale food—there just is never enough food in the house by the end of the month!”
