Thank You From Our Clients

 

Client ImageWilliam is a retired veteran in the San Marcos community. While unable to work due to a car accident that left him with serious back problems, Willam spends his free time volunteering at the food bank and giving back whenever he can. He worked as a chef for many years, traveling to 48 states in the U.S., Mexico and Canada. William learned how to cook from watching his mother in the kitchen as a child and now he is able to give her the gift she gave to him. His mother's health is not good and William has become her primary caregiver and cooks for her regularly. William is grateful that the food bank provides him with the resources to continue doing what he loves...cooking. William says, "The food bank literally kept me alive. That's the greateset thing I could say. They really saved my life."
