Offering Food and Hope for Veterans

"I've received SNAP benefits in the past, but it's been a while. I have trouble getting [reliable] transportation and haven't been able to make it to an office to re-apply. After I pay my rent each month, I only have a couple hundred dollars leftover. It's hard enough for me to buy food let alone a bus pass to get where I need to go. I'm so very glad you were here today." - a Hoosier Veteran

Brianna, our SNAP Outreach Specialist, assisted this man with submitting a SNAP application and as she thought about his need to access better transportation, she mentioned to him that veterans are able to ride the IndyGo buses if they complete a program application. He was ecstatic and said, "I had no idea that program existed! I will make sure that I apply."

We were happy to help make this veteran's day a little brighter by providing him with services right when he needed it the most. Getting enough to eat is a battle military veterans don't deserve to face. Thanks to your support, we can help offer hope and meet just one of the needs of veterans and active duty military families who are struggling and deserve our help and gratitude for their ultimate sacrifice.
