Diane’s Story

Food is such a fundamental human right. Yet Food for Lane County tells us that 1 in 5 people in Lane County experience hunger at some point during the year.

Diane is one of them. A disability prevents the single mom from maintaining regular employment. St. Vincent de Paul's Atkinson Food Room is helping her make ends meet every month.

"They provide extra nutrition for my diet," she says. "I'm really grateful to have St. Vincent de Paul in my life."

To hear Diane's experience in her own words, watch the video below.
