Jon’s Story

On September 8, 2016

A tantalizing aroma of fried chicken filled the air as Jon held out his plate at the meal being served at the National Guard Armory.  First, the chicken, then a pile of steaming mashed potatoes, then chicken gravy, then buttered peas, then a green salad were loaded onto his plate.

His eyes filled with tears as he sat down with his filled plate.  A server delivering milk and chocolate cake to him asked if he was all right.  “Yes,” he said.  “I haven’t eaten for two days.  I can’t believe all this good food.  Thank you!”
