Helping People Newly Housed
Updated: Apr 25
Meet Anne. Anne lived with her husband in a tent in the woods for almost 3 years. Recently, she and her husband found housing through one of our partnering organizations, Reliance Health. The housing director there connected Anne with us to help stock her new pantry with nutritious organic foods (donated to MALTA by United Natural Foods International), this was an extra blessing since the couple's SNAP benefits had not yet been received. Additionally, Anne received full-size toiletries and paper goods along with some basic clothing for her husband and herself.
Did you know that cleaning supplies, toiletries, and paper goods are not covered by SNAP benefits (i.e.”food stamps”) ?? For this reason, Malta now accepts donations of household paper goods, and cleaning supplies.
