I was so happy to have a ride with BCCOA Transportation to go and get free food for my family. Paying $4.00 to go to Greenville is really a blessing for me. The meat that I get alone is worth more than $4.00. I never miss our time to pick up. Riding the bus is a treat on its own. Sometimes we start talking about what’s going on in the community, and before you know it we are back home.
