Centre, Ala.- Rising food prices, soaring inflation, and increased energy costs seem to be creating a firestorm for Cherokee County residents coping with food insecurity.
"We are serving new clients every week and seeing many former clients return,” said Cindy McGinnis, director of
the Family Care Center. “Our food distribution days have not only seen an increase in the need for food, but also clothing and other assistance.”
Financially, the days ahead will be difficult for many in Cherokee County. Senior citizens, disabled individuals, and those with fixed incomes will be the hardest hit. However, people in
need can always turn to the Family Care Center.
“We are confident that despite the challenges ahead, we will be able to continue to meet the increasing needs of our community thanks to the love and support we receive from the people of Cherokee County,” declared McGinnis. “We are blessed to live where neighbors are willing
to help neighbors.”
