“The groceries I get there every month, including fresh produce, really make a difference.”
Tina is a disabled Air Force Veteran and client of Fall River Veterans’ Center food pantry, one of GBFB’s member hunger-relief agencies.
“I loved flying planes and was honored to enter the Air Force. But, injuries forced me to stop working, and then I went through a tough divorce. I needed help, and moved back to Fall River to be near my family. Now, I’m completely disabled, and it is very hard to make ends meet. When I reached out to the Veterans Association of Bristol County, I learned about their food pantry and other services. The groceries I get there every month, including fresh produce, really make a difference to my very tight food budget. I’ve also been able to give back by using my degree in programming to help with the Veterans’ Center computers. Personally, I could never give back as much as these people have given me.”
