LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — With the holidays over, the uptick of food giveaways may be starting to slow down. But one organization is making sure veterans aren’t forgotten in the new year.

"We had food in three rooms and they were filled from the floor to probably two feet above the tables stacked with food," said Robert Dough, co-founder of the Veterans Transition Resource Center.

Dough is an Air Force veteran and hosts a radio show with Jim Lytner called Veterans Talk the Forgotten Promise.

Saturday, the organization was able to hold a food giveaway for veterans and their families.

"People that need stuff, especially veterans, because some are only making it on their disability insurance. So, after the Christmas bills and everything it's kind of the ideal time to do this because people are still struggling," Dough said.

He says it's his way of giving back to the veteran community.
