We are so proud of one of our clients for accomplishing a big goal. Esperanza Adeoye, is the first member of her family to graduate college. She graduated from Mountain View College in June receiving an Associate's Degree of Science. "I have always wanted to make a difference in peoples lives. Nursing is a good way to do that." said Esperanza. It has been hard for the 36 year old mother of three to go to school Mon - Fri and work double shifts on the weekend, but she has accomplished her goal. "I think, rather than stopping my education, I want to get a business degree so I will be more able to support my kids. The Cedar Hill Food Pantry helps put food on our table that might not be there depending on my salary alone."she said. Congratulations, Esperanza, we are so proud of you. Good Luck.

Their story is only one of 300 other families being served by Cedar Hill Food Pantry.
