Food for vets


Latter Rain Harvest Fellowship, along with local VFW posts 3242, 4384, 6917 and 10124 and the American Legion, unloaded and distributed nearly 800 boxes of food for local food-insecure military veterans, said Len Hampton of Las Cruces, who is the VFW National Council member for New Mexico. The boxes were delivered and unloaded Saturday, Sept. 5, on Mesquite Street and on Friday, Sept. 11, in the parking lot behind COAS Bookstore downtown. Hampton said the food boxes were provided to the church through the nonprofit Farmers to Family Food box, a USDA program. Food from the boxes was delivered to veterans’ homes and made available to them for pickup. “The local veteran community is very appreciative of the food boxes from the Latter Rain Harvest Fellowship and would like to partner with any group that wants to support veterans and their families,” Hampton said.
