Jeannine Rodgers lugs four bags of groceries from the Good Shepherd food bank to a bus stop on Cannon Street East.

“I hate asking people for help, so it feels crappy,” said Rodgers, who lives on a monthly disability payment of $1,151.

Rodgers, 45, rents an apartment in the basement of a house for $790.

After that, there’s “pretty much nothing” left, which is why she hits the food bank once a month.
