New Reynoldsburg Food Market Concept - WBNS 10TV
"I work full time, I just don’t make enough money, unfortunately, and I have some medical issues, so, in order to make ends meet, I kind of have to have a little bit of help," Gaines said. "If you’ve got $50 for the whole month, and you’re like, well, I need gas, and I also need food, what do you do, you know. But now, at least I can eat." - MOM@HEART Shopper Kelly Gaines
"Before, you would come to a pantry and the connotation was, I’m going to give you whatever we have, and now it’s a matter of, come and shop for your family and what they will enjoy. It’s no longer just about giving food, it’s what the value of that food is, the nutritional value, and how it really blesses a family."
-Cheryl Wooten, HEART Executive Director
