One in every five families that use a food pantry within the Feeding America network has a veteran in the house. Second Harvest is launching a new MilitaryShare program which will provide food to veteran, reserve, and active duty military members and their families. Currently we serve 560 military families once a month with a box of staple foods and additional fresh produce, dairy and lean proteins. MilitaryShare is a true veterans helping veterans initiative, with distributions at sites such as Armories, American Legions and VFW halls, with the boxes packed by volunteers from military and veteran organizations.
