Food Bank Recipient Pens Touching Note Thanking God, Truckers, and Farmers
Winston-Salem, NC – An anonymous food bank recipient recently expressed gratitude for the food given to his family and neighbors in a touching handwritten note that shows some people truly “get it.”
The note was handed to a staff member of Second Harvest Food Bank of Northwest NC last week, according to a social media post.
“In these unprecedented times, there are many who have stepped up to the plate to help those in need,” the food bank wrote.

From the bottom of my heart I want to say thank you for all the food that you guys have given me and my family as well as my neighbors, that have not been able to come.

May God provide you with more
May God keep you all safe and protected
