Help Stacey feed her son
“Going hungry feels hopeless. It’s terrifying sometimes. It was just such a relief to know I could receive a Foodbank hamper each month. It makes such a difference.” – Stacey, Single Mum
Queenslanders like Stacey need your help
Stacey didn’t think she’d ever have to ask for help – let alone food. Stacey’s proud and hardworking. She pays her own way and is doing her best to give her son a happy, healthy childhood. And she’s doing it alone – without any financial support.
Her relationship with Blake’s father ended badly when Blake was three years old, so Stacey and Blake moved to a small rural town. Stacey was thrilled to find an admin job; and although it didn’t pay much, it was a fresh start.
You wouldn’t find chocolates and magazines at Stacey’s … but you would find a mum sacrificing her own meals to ensure that her son can eat. It’s not a sacrifice any parent should have to make.
Although no one would think any less of her as a mother, Stacey is embarrassed about it. She confided: “I feel like I’ve failed because these are basic needs that I should be able to cover. It’s not something I tell people.”
Stacey was with Blake at a family fun day, where she learned that she could access regular Foodbank hampers – a gift that she’s grateful for to this day.
“Foodbank hampers have a trickle-down effect. Blake is more focused at school, and everything at my job works out a little better, because I’m not stressed all the time.” – Stacey
