Brooklyn has experienced homelessness off and on since she turned 18. Now 21, she stays with friends and family near Clarkston. She has medical disabilities which prevent her from working.
Brooklyn struggles to find enough food to eat between trips to the local food bank, and relied on Kathy’s pantry, in Brooklyn’s words, “to pick up the slack.” Since the little free pantry has been closed, Brooklyn cannot afford to buy the food she needs on a daily basis. Brooklyn wants to be able to take food from Kathy’s little free pantry because she would otherwise go hungry.
