Simple ways for you to give back to veterans struggling with hunger in your community.
The Fourth of July is one of America’s favorite holidays, filled with barbecues and fireworks. But amidst the festivities, it’s important to remember that veterans make it possible for us to celebrate our country’s independence.
Sadly, many military personnel face hunger as they struggle to negotiate the complex stages of military life — from deployment to returning home to life as a veteran. There are veterans across our country like Harold, who suffered an injury and severe depression during his time at war, and needed help getting back on his feet. Harold received food and a fresh outlook on life from his local food pantry, but there are many veterans that still need help — maybe in your own community.
You can help veterans receive the meals and hope they need to reach for a better tomorrow. This month, and all year round, join us in supporting veterans by taking these simple actions:
Just as our military heroes have provided us with safety and security beyond our borders, we must in turn provide them with a safe and secure future here at home. This Fourth of July, let’s honor our courageous veterans by raising awareness of the challenges they may face, providing them with nutritious meals and recognizing them for their unwavering commitment to our nation.Tags: Innovative Solutions to Hunger , Veterans
