Picking Produce [A CARE Mobile Story]

One lady pulled me aside to tell me how great the produce looked that day. She walked to the site from her home just a few blocks away, but it was still a long trip for her. She had breast cancer and couldn’t lift anything with her left arm. Thankfully she had a cart with her so she could carry home some of the heavier fresh items we had that day. A couple weeks later she called me over, with huge smile on her face, to tell me that she just heard back from her doctor. Good news, she wasn’t going to need a round of chemotherapy and would be able to continue to make our distributions.
