This is Grant ...

Grant is a father of four and recently was laid-off from his job. He is receiving unemployment pay, but it isn’t enough to get by. He is having a hard time providing three healthy meals a day for his family.

What should Grant do?

What should Grant do?

  • A

    Go without food so his kids can eat, leaving him weak and with no energy to look for potential work.

  • B

    Send his kids to school without breakfast in order to stretch the food budget.

What happened?

Grant called his kid’s school for help and was informed of a United Way funded program that provides nutritional breakfast and snacks for kids. Grant’s kids participated in the program and Grant felt relief knowing his kids could start the day on a full stomach.
