It’s not every day that the military is running an event next to a mobile food pantry. That was the case when SEMO Food Bank hosted a mobile food pantry at Miner Baptist Church in Sikeston, MO.
Different branches from the military were present for a medical training event that provided medical and dental care to the public at no cost. The event lasted for a full week.
Tyrone, from Sikeston, was one of the people that came to the training event and the mobile food pantry. Tyrone is a veteran who served nine years in Marines infantry division. He suffers from a bad back and knees, so the free medical care was appreciated.
He was accompanied by his wife and needed some extra food in their household. He was very thankful for both the military medical training and the mobile food pantry being there.
“Man, I’m thankful for the all of the donations that people give out and for the military being here too,” Tyrone said.
