Food insecurity exists among anyone, even those who sacrificed and have become military veterans.
Bobby, veteran and most of his family served in the military. USAF USMC ARMY. For Bobby and his family, everything was going well until November 2020, when he was let go from his job due to the COVID-19 pandemic. “We struggled for a good while because of it,” Bobby said. Working with case managers Bobby was able to get another job and find housing that fit his financial needs. The food Bobby and his family receive from the VCHC food pantry have helped them dearly through their struggles over the past 2 years.
“This food means a lot to us. In the next few months we should be self sufficient and then it will be our turn to help. I never want another veteran to struggle like we did. Being the head of the household and not being able to put food on our table made me so so depressed and angry with myself. I felt like a failure. I would have been lost without VCHCs support. ” Bobby said. “It’s been a Godsend, it truly has”
