Ernestine came to Witnesses to Hunger after hearing about it in Kinship, a group that she belongs to for grandparents raising grandchildren. Ernestine has raised her now seven-year-old granddaughter since birth, and often takes care of her grandsons as well.
Ernestine is from Harrisburg, and is very concerned with nutrition. She wishes that there were more education programs available on nutrition and how to get the most nutritious food with the limited money you have. Ernestine works at a local food bank, and helped run a nutritional summer program for children in her community.
