Case Study-Amelia

Imagine … having a job that hardly covers your rent.

Amelia thought she was living happily ever after with her husband and two small children in Eldorado when things went very wrong in the marriage. After the divorce, she moved back to Madrid, where her elderly parents live, found a small apartment and got a job waiting tables to make ends meet.

Over the last six months, business has been slow, and with no support from her ex-husband, Amelia can’t make enough to cover her rent and utilities and buy food for herself and her children. Once she gets on her feet, Amelia hopes to leverage her community college degree and start a small business making desserts for restaurants in the area. Until then, she desperately needs the additional help provided by The Food Depot to feed her family.
