You probably heard that it's a good idea to keep at least three months of savings in case of an emergency. Well, almost a year ago, we all ran into a huge emergency - the COVID-19 pandemic.

Many of us are beyond our three months of savings, and are trying to figure out ways of getting by. That's what we're talking about on today's episode of The Check-In. From food to shelter, it can be a struggle to meet our basic needs. What are you worried about right now? How are you getting by? Today we're speaking with two guests to give us a bit of insight into what people need and how you can help.

Our guests:

Joanne Nelson, Director, Boone County Community Services Department

Lindsay Lopez, President and CEO, The Food Bank for Central and Northeast Missouri
