Humanity House staff have a message for those who are struggling financially: We can help with food, so you can focus on paying bills.

The number of people who need help paying utility bills has skyrocketed this year, as families cope with the fallout from a global health pandemic. 

Food, though, is much more plentiful at area food banks.
