Nathan didn’t know how important healthy food was until he collapsed while he was working. He went to a doctor and found out he had diabetes. His health was so compromised that he lost one of his legs.
Unable to work, Nathan moved into his van and was living all alone until someone told him about Cityteam. When Nathan arrived, he found more than a nourishing meal. He found hope and the closest thing to a family he’s had in a long time.
He’s still in pain and needs a little help, but he pushes all that aside to volunteer here at Cityteam. “I can still do a lot of things,” Nathan says. A healthy meal at Cityteam makes a life and death difference for people like Nathan.Read More Stories
