Veterans and their families dedicate themselves to service of our country to include the cost of their lives. Because of the military lifestyle, mission cycle, and experiences many find it challenging to transition and thrive in civilian life. This includes the military spouses and widows that have spent their time following their service member from duty station to duty station averaging three years in one location to pursue their own careers and develop personal and professional networks

Feed our Vets states, “1.5 million vets at risk of becoming homeless and going hungry,” and NBC NEWS, San Diego reports that, “25% of military families seek food assistance.” This is a real problem that impacts one of the country’s most undervalued communities.
