Stephanie Humphreys arrived at a small church in Austin, Texas, on Friday wearing a blue mask and a Hope Food Pantry T-shirt decorated with an image of vegetables shaped like a heart. Volunteers set up tables at the door with forms asking clients about income, government assistance, and personal details. In a back room, wooden pallets holding jars of peanut butter, boxes of milk, and canned goods line one wall. Volunteers fill paper bags with fresh beets, carrots, and kale.
