Veterans and their families across the state are experiencing food insecurity. If you or someone you know needs to supplement your grocery budget but still wants healthy food choices, come visit the Veterans Food Pantry. Our Pantry is a Client Choice Pantry, giving you the choice to choose what food you want and need
The Veterans Services Department launched a Food Pantry for those in need. Food insecurity has been one of the biggest issue facing our veterans’ population in recent years, says Eric Segundo, Director of Veterans Services in Ludlow. This is another resource to support our veterans and their families.
