“When I bring home food in m my backpack, I don’t get as many whippings.”
Owsley County Outreach in Booneville, Kentucky, distributes food to many county residents of all ages, with help from the Texas Baptist Offering for World Hunger. On a typical day, comments such as these have been noted while processing applicants:
- An elementary school-age child commented, “Thank you for the food. I don’t get as many whippings as I used to, now that I have my own food in my backpack.”
- Spoken by a senior citizen, “I could not buy groceries this month because this is the month I buy my meds. I buy food one month and meds the next.”
- Another family told us, “Without you, we would never get green beans. We can’t afford them…we love them…and you always give us a few extra.”
- While unloading the student’s backpacks loaded with food, bought by Texas Baptists, children are jumping up and down and shouting, “YAY!”
