Brie Williams lies on the top bunk of the bed she shares with her brother. Her mother is a single mom who graduated from Brown Mackie 2 years ago and currently works at Toledo Hospital in sterile processing. The family does not receive any form of government assistance, but they rely on the food pantry for breads and sweats to supplement their groceries because so much of the monthly income goes towards rent, utilities, and gas for getting to and from work. Brie wants to become a singer when she grows up. Her favorite song right now is “Let It Go’ from the soundtrack to the movie Frozen. Brie’s mother says, “Put yourself in other people’s shoes for a second. Most people aren’t born with a silver spoon in their mouth. At any time anybody could be in the position where they need help and if your help gets taken away, you don’t know how difficult that can be... If it wasn’t for the food pantry my children wouldn’t have had food that week.” 5/16/2014
