We are pleased to share real stories and words from some of the families we support. This is how they feel about ThanksGiver.

"Since my children were born, I no longer work and it is very difficult to buy enough with one salary. ThanksGiver is a very valuable support for many families. 
I hope this is available in every community so many people can take advantage of it."

"We are a family of 5 (3 children). As a mother, I worry that my children never go to bed hungry. Me and my husband never want to make a decision on who gets food from the kids today. Since we go to ThanksGiver on Thursday, we have more food at home and we are enormously grateful."

"My husband is an IV pensioner and I am a housewife. Thank you very much for
this opportunity because I love to come and I don't have to buy anything anymore."

"We are a family with one mother and three children. I get vegetables, bread and food. The people who work there are very helpful and give us many things. Thank you from the bottom of my heart."

"We are so grateful to Thanksgiver for their efficiency, contribution and sustainability. Our family can be supported with food and we can make sure our children don't go hungry. ThanksGiver is an incredible organization and we hope they continue to support our community."

"I and many others would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for Thanksgiver.

For me personally it came at just the right time. I am a single mother of twins and do not work 100%. I used to have the opportunity to go shopping in Germany but, with the current situation, I and others are obliged to shop here in Switzerland for months and we all know how expensive Switzerland is compared to Germany or other European countries. 

I have spent during months 3 times for food and there it is already about survival. Therefore the Thanksgiver is a blessing for me and many others. Since we buy with our food passport for this small amount and also receive majority very good and high-quality food.

Through this opportunity I save a little money and do not have to turn over every centime 3 times by the end of the month. Especially in this time that we live.

We have the choice between fruits and fresh vegetables and bread and much more. This allows us parents to breathe a little.

So I would like to say a big praise and an even bigger thank you to all the sympathetic, friendly helpers and especially to Laura."
