You Bring Guadalupe’s Family Around the Table – Kansas Food Bank

You Bring Guadalupe’s Family Around the Table

These are the enthusiastic words heard almost daily from the mouth of Guadalupe’s 2-year old granddaughter — especially since Guadalupe’s been visiting a Kansas Food Bank food pantry partner near her home to pick up some of her granddaughter’s favorite food.

Guadalupe and her husband adopted all four of their grandchildren following the death of the children’s mother, their daughter-in-law.

Thankfully, Guadalupe found out about the food pantry soon after adopting her grandkids and has been visiting ever since. Food pantry volunteers and staff almost always recognize her and often even ask to see photos of her grandkids.

“The vegetables, the fruit, the cereal, everything…they help me out a lot,” Guadalupe says of the food she receives.

Guadalupe’s husband has worked the same stable job for the city for the past 17 years, but his income has understandably come up short with four more children in the household at once. That’s why the couple is so grateful for the food pantry.

All four kids are big fans of the food Guadalupe brings home — though perhaps none as enthusiastic as her 2-year-old granddaughter. She enjoys any fruit or vegetable Guadalupe chooses — even cabbage!

Guadalupe is grateful for the nutritious food she can provide for her family and the meals they share around the table together thanks to the Kansas Food Bank and friends like you.
