Jasmine 1920 2560 Harry Chapin Food Bank

Lee Civic Center, North Fort Myers

Jasmine was waiting for food she needed for her family. Her husband had been off of work for about five weeks, first with a tooth infection and then because he was running a fever. But he has tested negative for COVID-19 and planned to go back to work that day. Jasmine is a stay-at-home mom with three kids. She said she only comes for food when she absolutely needs it. “That way there’s more for other people,” she said. She will split the food with her family. and others who can’t make it out to the Civic Center to get the food. Her mother is still able to work from home, but her father’s hours have been cut, she said. “It is what it is.”
