2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By M. Webb on May 8, 2012
Each year over 37 million people in this country are helped by food banks. The 24 people profiled in this book put a face on the problem of hunger. These are our people...our extended family comprised of the aged, the disabled, the jobless, and the destitute. When you read their stories, it will not be difficult to comprehend how quickly anyone could go from paying their own way to needing a bit of assistance.

The authors of this book are part of an army of people engaged on a daily basis in the war against hunger, working in the trenches of the community food banks nationwide. By presenting the 24 profiles in this book, Ed Jones and Jean Lowe help us understand there is a real need for us to step up and fill the empty shelves in our food banks.

The food bank is a meeting place where our needy family members can get food. It is also a place of hope and encouragement for a brighter future. Without a doubt our brothers and sisters wrestle with problems every day, but when the love and generosity in our hearts is made tangible by our giving food and donations to the food bank, we can make sure hunger is a problem solved.

We highly recommend this book which will give you a true perspective of who uses food banks.

Mack and Celia Webb

These stories give a glimpse into a world that most of us never see--the world where shelter and a full stomach are precarious and uncertain. Many of the stories show how fragile a "normal" life can be. There are tales of successful people who through combinations of circumstances find themselves unable to manage to provide their own basic needs. Other tales are sad narratives of people who never had a chance, who never had the resources and support to reach stability.
Most of all, there are stories of love and character. These are not lazy people content to live off the charity of others; they are unfortunate people forced to accept charity. They cannot be characterized in a sentence or a paragraph.
