Food Stamps and Food Programs

Kelly, NSC Community Aging Specialist, spoke with a client who received the food delivery last week and was just beside herself and so was her grandchild as they exclaimed, “BANANAS!!!” then upon seeing the cartons of eggs asked, “Will we get to eat breakfast now?”

Humbling for us all however the client was embarrassed to even tell us so we have promised not to share the name but asked to share the story. Kelly double checked to make sure she is receiving full amount of food stamps and we discussed other pantries and food programs to help along with any other programs/services she might not already be taking advantage of.
