FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – The VA’s second annual holiday food pantry is helping feed veterans and keeping them warm during the holidays.
Normally the VA holds a giveaway twice a month, but the holiday giveaway includes extra items like turkey and other holiday favorites.
“We do it to serve the veterans that have food insecurities. They may need a little help to get by with the food items they need for the month,” said Lindsay Bartrom, chief for nutrition & food services at the Fort Wayne VA Medical Center.
Along with food, veterans also received a goodie bag with a blanket, hat, scarf and hand sanitizer.
