Baptist Children's Homes Food Roundup Meaningful to Siblings

The Food Roundup impacts the lives of Baptist Children’s Homes’ residents every year. The annual food drive is particularly meaningful to Trevor and Tabitha who live at Broyhill Home in Clyde.

Before coming to BCH, the siblings were never sure when, or if, they would be able to eat. Often they went hungry.

“We didn’t really get to eat three meals a day or eat every day for that matter,” Tabitha recalls. “We ate whatever we could.”

The brother and sister depended on soup kitchens, school lunches or food donations to get by and not starve.

“One time, we went a week or so sharing a jar of peanut butter and that was it,” Tabitha says. “That was normal to us to go without for a certain amount of time.”

Circumstances changed greatly when they came to BCH. According to Tabitha, food was no longer a concern. “We actually got to eat breakfast, lunch and dinner every day and sit with each other at the dining room table and it was great.”
