My name is AJ. I’ve been coming for a long time. Years, years. Ever since they started this, coming here. It helps me a whole lot. I just like coming here. You know, without the community, the food bank, I don’t think it’d be here. Oak Park, south area . . . but I thank God that we have something like this everywhere, where everybody can have a chance to be in a food line to get something to eat. The ones that have it all, one day they might have to stand in line too. I will be grateful for everything someone gives me all the time. And it’s always hard to get the food that you need, but you know, I pray that each and every day it’s going to be all right, you know?
