Local veterans took part in a food distribution program Friday.
The Veterans Table Program is a partnership between the Louis A Johnson VA Medical Center and the Mountaineer Food Bank.
Next month’s distribution will be on June 22, and will be the third Friday of each month after that.
“Well, we realize there are a lot of veterans out there that are really struggling. And we want to have programs that really work with their needs and meet the needs of our vets in West Virginia. And we felt that it was really important to give them a helping hand because they’ve done so much for us in West Virginia that its critical that we help them when they needed it,” said Chad Morrison, Mountaineer Food Bank.
The food bank will be setting up a sponsorship program where you can feed a vet for $20 a month. For more information, call the food bank at 304-364-5518.
