‘It’s survival to me’: Soldiers’ Angels distributes record-breaking amount of food to veterans with help of Boeing

U.S. Navy veteran Lisa McLeish is forever grateful for organizations such as Soldiers’ Angels, since affording food on a fixed income is a struggle.

SAN ANTONIO — An army of volunteers with Soldiers’ Angels and other organizations helped distribute food to hundreds of veterans in the parking lot of Cowboys Dancehall Thursday afternoon.

Boeing awarded Soldiers’ Angels a $50,000 grant, which made the record-breaking distribution possible during a time when food security is prominent among low-income veterans and even active-duty families.
