Greenhouse Ministries, a local non-profit, is helping hundreds of households with food as more and more people are finding themselves without work.
If the head of a household is bringing in $39,000 annually and is married with two children, their weekly take home pay after taxes rings in at $657.05 or $2,628.20 monthly. After one mortgage payment of $950, it drops down to $1,678.20 followed by a single car payment of $300 it equals $1,378.20. If you are the only one working and you add into the mix utilities and insurance for your home and auto, you only have $978.20 left each month. This is the scenario many residents are facing. With one week off of work and a skipped paycheck (if your work is paid hourly), the amount falls down to only $321.15 remaining in your bank account. If you have two weeks without work and without pay, your account is suddenly in the negative with no money for food.
Around 250 Rutherford County employees and their families packaged 51,250 meals on Saturday in an effort to tackle hunger issues in the community.
Free food (groceries) will be distributed this Friday to those in need in Rutherford County. The food will be handed out at Greenhouse Ministries...
