Field Report by Operation Blessing

VIRGINIA – Alisha and her husband are a hardworking couple trying to make the most of their limited resources in the face of inflation and food insecurity. She homeschools their children, Mackenzie (7) and David (10), and works as an online tutor while her husband serves as an aircraft mechanic in the Navy. But sometimes it’s been difficult for them to make ends meet.

Despite their tight budget, this family believes in giving back to their community. Generous partners like you have not only kept food on this precious family’s table but have also empowered them to help their struggling neighbors!

According to Alisha, the food they’ve received has helped to save her and her neighbors hundreds of dollars on grocery bills each month.

Like for so many Americans, the strain of inflation and food insecurity seemed like a constant threat. But your continued partnership helped to provide her family and community with food free of charge!
