Meet Crystal and her Family - A Message from Chef Mark

Today, I’d like you to meet Crystal and her family so you can learn more about her story and how you can help people in similar situations.

When Crystal first became ill with breast cancer last year, she was too fatigued by radiation treatments to make dinner for herself and her children. Not only were Crystal and her family missing out on their important family mealtime ritual, but Crystal became concerned that she would no longer be able to feed her kids at all.

That’s where you came in. Thanks to the generous support of people like you, we were able to step in and make sure Crystal’s children could still look forward to their favorite meals each night.

“The dinners are great and nutritious,” says Crystal. “It’s convenient and easy for me, especially dinner. I just microwave the meals if I want my kids to have a cooked meal.”

As you know, there are many people in our community who have challenges similar to Crystal’s, and they need your help today. It’s hard to care for others when they themselves are ill. 

At Food & Friends, we’re proud to make transformational change in the lives of people who are fighting life-challenging illnesses like cancer and HIV/AIDS. And we’re proud to have you with us.

You may have heard that we need to raise $100,000 in the days and weeks to come to sustain us through the tough, hot summer months, when donations slow down and our clients need extra attention. We’re counting on you to help – will you join us today?

Let’s make sure we can always say “Yes!” to neighbors in need, like Crystal and her family. Please join in support of ourSummer Food Fund campaign today.

In Gratitude,

Mark Locraft
Executive Chef

P.S. Your tax-deductible contribution to our Summer Food Fund campaign will help reach our goal of raising $100,000 to sustain us through the tough, hot summer months, money we’ll use to support Crystal and more than 3,000 clients like her this year.
