I've had trouble making ends meet for all of my adult life, and for eight of the nine years that I've lived in Northside, I've visited CAIN's food pantry almost every month. They've helped me stretch my grocery budget when I've had some money and helped me to stave off starvation when I haven't. I'm looking forward to visiting tomorrow morning as I write this, and that anticipated opportunity to receive free food has figured into how I planned meals this month.

The volunteers and staff are friendly and helpful and have made me feel welcome even when I've felt guilty for being a regular relying on charity. In the past few years, since the food pantry switched to a Choice Pantry and began working with the FreeStore FoodBank and Northside Farmer's Market to provide more fresh produce, I've noticed a pronounced improvement over the nutritive value of the meals I can make from the ingredients I've obtained there.

There was one instance in which CAIN enlisted me as a helper when they paid to have some renovation done and I've volunteered at times when I've been able to. I'm afraid I've allowed myself to become something of a hermit in recent years, but CAIN has kept the plight of the unemployed and poorly-paid visible by being located on Northside's main drag, Hamilton Avenue, next to the big old Presbyterian Church where community events are often held and across from the Public Library. While I remain hopeful that I'll be able to work my way back to self-sufficiency and I intend to, if I manage to achieve this accomplishment, I will owe CAIN the wherewithal to survive when I was unable to provide food for myself and an example of people who persevere in service to others with patience and kindness year after year.

CAIN doesn’t just speak of love of God, they show it - and we all see it and feel it.
I am proud that my personal growth was inspired by CAIN, so I welcome this opportunity to share my story to hopefully motivate you to donate to CAIN – since their services are so very important to all of the
community.
It is absolutely necessary that we all know as human beings that someone cares. I and many others feel that concern and compassion at CAIN. We know how these good acts are passed on. It just makes good sense to help CAIN help others. It makes for a better, safer, and friendlier community for everyone.

The Great!

The positive effects that CAIN has on my lifestyle are very apparent to all who have observed this transformation. CAIN provided so much over the years, food from their pantry, household items of all kinds, financial assistance for rent and utilities, and most importantly, a place of rest for my spirit to renew its energy.
