Mother Lawrence

Photos and story by Ambika Kafle  

Alice Lawrence, also known as Mother Lawrence, is the head of the Mother Lawrence Foundation ( a food pantry). Mrs. Lawrence is 80 years old, she lives with her two sons and her husband, Jacob Lawrence, in Mountain View.

She is originally from Kansas. She got married to Mr. Lawrence in 1960 and they have 12 kids. They moved to Anchorage in 1967. Since then, Mrs. Lawrence has been giving out food to the less fortunate. She personally feels how it is like when there is nowhere to go and nothing to eat.

“I don’t care who it is, I will give food and other things to anyone who comes to me when they are in need,” Mrs. Lawrence says.

Even though she is in hard times herself (she got robbed many times), with limited funds, she still wants to help others. You can contact Mrs. Lawrence at 3609 Richmond Ave, Anchorage, AK 99508.
