Cancer Survivor Finds Help at Food Pantry

74 year old James is a colon cancer survivor. But he says he wouldn’t have survived if it weren’t for the food pantry he visits in Farmville, Louisiana.

“The food was much needed during the chemo,” he said.

The pantry receives food from the Food Bank of Northeast Louisiana, a member of the Feeding America network. James has to drive 45 minutes to the pantry, but it’s worth it, he says. Without the healthy food he received, his road to recovery might’ve been much bumpier.

“I would probably be spending all my money on food without this,” he said.
