Silvia, Soboba Nutrition Market Recipient
"I would tell the people not to feel bad about receiving food. Food is essential. It’s important. It’s a priority to eat. It’s a lot of help to us that are struggling financially right now. Because I do not have unemployment, disability, or anything. So, the food I get here, I try to make it last a week or at least five days, whatever it takes."
Peter, Soboba Nutrition Market Recipient
"I grew up on a reservation in Arizona. I am Navajo, and I am a retired veteran. The Soboba Market is important because of financial setbacks right now. Last year, my air conditioner went out, so I had to pay around 40,000 dollars in financial struggle. So that really hit me financially, so this market is essential because I don’t have to worry about not having enough food in my house to feed my family."
