Building a Brighter Future: Shani’s Story

12.14.2017

 

I’m a proud Joyful Food Market shopper and volunteer. Each month, I spend an afternoon at my child’s school helping my neighbors shop for healthy food and working with the Chef Educators to get children and their parents excited about eating healthy. These markets are so important to my family. As a mother of five children, it can be a balancing act to make ends meet. A few extra bags of groceries courtesy of these markets can be a huge help. Plus, I get so much joy out of cooking with my kids, preparing dishes with ingredients we picked up at the markets. They have made our family stronger.
