hero share your story

At Marion Polk Food Share, we understand that hunger can touch lives in many different ways. Whether you’ve faced it firsthand, witnessed it in your community, or supported those in need, we want to hear your story.

Your experiences can shed light on the realities of hunger and inspire others to join us in our mission to end it.

Here are topics we’ve discussed with other people impacted by hunger that you could write about.

  • Share a time when you struggled to make ends meet and had to choose between buying food or covering other essential expenses.
  • Describe how accessing local food assistance programs, such as food pantries or SNAP/food stamps, has impacted your life or the lives of others.
  • Explain why you choose to volunteer your time to fight hunger and how it has made a difference in your community.
  • Tell a story about someone you know who faces hunger and the ways in which they have been supported.
  • Discuss any challenges you’ve encountered in accessing food or services in your area.

Your voice matters, and together, we can make a difference in the fight against hunger.
