About this Event
Molly and her mom don’t always have enough food, so one Saturday they visit their local food pantry. Molly’s happy to get foot to eat until she sees her classmate Caitlin, who’s embarrassed to be at the food pantry. Can Molly help Caitlin realize that everyone needs help sometimes?
This sensitive story about food insecurity invites conversations with readers about food pantries, promotes a positive message of everyone needing help sometimes and how it’s okay to ask and receive assistance, and destigmatizes this necessary resource. An important topic, as of 2018 per the USDA, size million children lived in food-insecure households, and the pandemic has greatly affected food security for many as well.
Beautifully written by Diane O’ Neill and illustrated by Brizida Magro.
