JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- What do you do when your pantry is empty and there's no money in the bank? It is a reality many First Coast families are facing. In 2012, Second Harvest Food Bank experienced a dramatic increase in food distribution.
"I think it is a blessing that this agency is here," said Donna Hill.
Hill, 53, was the breadwinner in her family of three until she became disabled.
"I got very sick," said Hill. "I am still trying to cope with it."
And then she was terminated from her job in December 2012.
"I am the breadwinner on a lot less money," she said, "but still the breadwinner."
