Richard's Story

Richard, a veteran, retired early from a good paying job. He had enough money put away to care for himself and his wife…that is until she became very ill. Quickly their life savings withered away as the medical bills came in and medications needed to be purchased. 

“When she was first sick, we sacrificed food on the table,” Richard explains. “I was embarrassed and my pride kept me from seeking help.”

When Richard’s wife insisted, he finally made his way to the Family Pathways Food Shelf. Now they have consistent healthy food on their table and Richard has even found time to volunteer once a week to help others shop for their food. He often remarks how he wants to make others feel as welcome as he did when he first stepped through the door.
