According to Feeding America, the nation’s largest domestic hunger relief charity, one in every five food bank households contains a veteran.
Hope for Heroes is Community Harvest Food Bank’s newest program designed to help veterans and military families in need. Veterans and military families going through transitions such as deployment, release from duty, underemployment, and homeless veterans transitioning into housing are eligible to receive six months of groceries supplied by the Community Cupboard pantry at Community Harvest Food Bank.
Each month, veterans will choose 100 pounds of nutritious foods (enough to fill a large grocery cart) while they get back on their feet and regain stability. Community Harvest is proud to serve our heroes and has partnered with the Department of Veterans Affairs and other organizations that will refer veterans and military families in need of assistance.
