Hungry? We Can Help

Living Hopefully.

A Veteran has Brighter Days, Thanks to You

Sixty–three–year–old Jerry had to take early retirement after serving 21 years in the United States Army, and several years in service to his community as a police officer. Now living on a small, fixed income, he’s very thankful for your ongoing generosity

We met Jerry at the food pantry at First Baptist Church Soddy Daisy, a partner agency of the Food Bank. Jerry relies on the nutritious groceries he picks up once a month.

“There would be days I would go hungry without the pantry,” he explains.

Jerry continues to look for part–time work to supplement his limited Social Security income, but now has health problems that limit him, including hearing loss, arthritis and asthma.

To top everything off, Jerry’s car also needs to be fixed, and he doesn’t have the extra money to make the repairs. His finances have been especially tight during the cold winter months when the cost of heating his home increases.

“This means a lot,” Jerry says of your thoughtful contributions.

Thank you for easing the burden for deserving neighbors like Jerry. Because of you, he has access to the nutritious food he needs to live life to the fullest in retirement.
