From coast to coast, join us in covering the country with meals for veterans in need.
The pandemic has brought unprecedented challenges to veterans across the country, from job loss to food insecurity. Due to COVID-19's economic impact, the veteran unemployment rate has risen to 5.3% as of December 2020. But more than 81% of the 462,000 veterans unemployed at the start of 2021 are in their prime working years, between the ages of 22 and 66.
Gaining access to adequate food should not be something people who have served our country have to worry about. According to the Veterans of Foreign Wars, approximately 25% of active duty and reserves seek aid from food pantries and other charitable organizations. Increased food insecurity is associated with a range of adverse health outcomes such as poorer control of diabetes, hypertension, depression, and other major psychiatric disorders, and the combination of these challenges can lead to a downward spiral for those who have sacrificed their lives for our country.
That’s why Greater Good Charities is providing support to partners on the ground who make sure our nation’s veterans and service members have access to nutritious meals. Join us in honoring veterans by providing nutritious meals across the country. From California to New York, together we can help improve veterans' access to daily nutritious meals and lighten their burden.
