Jury Avila and Marcos Perez - Amazing Grace Food Pantry (7)_EDITEDJury and her son, Marcos, 10, are clients at Amazing Grace Food Pantry in Wylie, TX. Jury is always excited about being able to pick up fresh produce when she visits the pantry.

“It’s very important,” she said in regards to eating a nutritious diet. “I want to have a healthy family.”

Because you choose to give, Jury can fill her family’s table with balanced meals — even when their finances are especially tight. Her husband has a job to provide for the family, but Jury has a disability that keeps her from working. Sometimes a trip to the supermarket just isn’t in the budget for them.

Jury is also diabetic, so eating balanced meals is critically important for her health. Jury said she gets up early every morning to fix her family a healthy breakfast, and they like to stay active together and spend time outdoors.

Marcos loves going to the park with his parents and playing basketball with his friends. He’s also a good student and loves math and science class. Your gifts mean he has the fuel he needs to focus.

We asked Jury if she had a message to share with the people who help keep her table full of quality whole foods, and she took a moment to reflect on her gratitude.

“I can’t say in words…” she said, emotion in her voice. “You just help me so much.”

She and Marcos told us they’re looking forward to the holidays — especially the hearty breakfast they’ll share together on Christmas morning.

Thank you for bringing joy to their family and many other families by supporting the North Texas Food Bank!
