“You really have no idea how much even the smallest amount helps, no matter what the size of the family is whether is one kid or 25 kids, just that one little thing takes a huge burden off the stress and weight of everything that we’re doing.”

One of the first parents to arrive at a food distribution at Sul Ross Middle School, Tia Maxie hugged the school’s social worker and thanked her for informing her of this opportunity to receive food for her children.

“I stay at a hotel room right now; I’m actually between jobs at the moment, so it helps out a lot.”

She said this was perfect timing as the holiday season is around the corner and her kids will be home for the holiday break.

“I got help before the Thanksgiving break, I also received a food distribution so they had extra stuff to eat, I didn’t have to worry so much about oh my gosh they’re going to be home, now I got to do breakfast, lunch, and dinner instead of just dinner because they’re here, so that helped out a lot.”

Tia says she’s appreciative of this help because her kids love fruits, cereal, and juices. She mentioned how impactful this is in her family.

“You really have no idea how much even the smallest amount helps, no matter what the size of the family is whether is one kid or 25 kids, just that one little thing takes a huge burden off the stress and weight of everything that we’re doing.”

Tia Maxie has two sons and a daughter who benefit from this assistance. Farm Fresh Friday is supported by the Red Nose Day Fund.
