Whether it’s the unprecedented layoffs, the closing of public schools, medical bills, fear of going into public, or a combination of all four, the spread of COVID-19 has compounded an already difficult situation for families unsure of where their next meal will come from.

“There had to be something I could do to help the community because there’s so many people out there hoarding toilet paper and buying all the milk,” Barlow said. “My community has a lot of elderly people, and my thought was if they don’t have to go to the grocery store, I don’t want them to because they’re at such high risk.”
