Like thousands of people across Houston, Sunseri’s home flooded during Hurricane Harvey. For two months following the storm she lived in a hotel provided by FEMA, along with her one-year-old son and her brother. But preparing meals in a hotel room can be a challenge.
“It’s kind of hard to keep up with food when you have to keep buying it every day,” she said. “So getting this assistance is very helpful.”
Sunseri received food from NAM’s Joanne Watford Nutrition Center. Like every guest at the choice food pantry, she was able to select groceries that would best meet her family’s needs. And everything was free of charge.
“The volunteers were very helpful, and I didn’t expect to get as much as I did,” she said. “They let you pick meat, and I love the fact that they have fresh vegetables. They also helped me with my baby—Pampers and things like that.”
In addition to food, NAM provided Sunseri with her first month’s rent to move into a new apartment, and registered her to receive holiday meals and toys at Thanksgiving and Christmas.
“You all are a blessing when no one else could be,” Sunseri said. “No one else has the help you offer right now. And this is truly a blessing.”
