Feeding San Diego Hosts Free Food Distributions To Honor Military Families And Veterans Ahead Of Veteran’s Day

Leading into the Veteran’s Day holiday, Feeding San Diego is hosting a series of free food distributions that celebrate local military families and veterans. Starting November 1 through November 13, Feeding San Diego will celebrate local heroes at its Together Tour large-scale food distributions, some of which are still seeing up to 1,000 attendees drive through. Providing food assistance to the local military community is a year-round priority for the county’s leading hunger-relief and food rescue non-profit.

Feeding San Diego is partnering with six of its community partners, all of whom will join the organization at its food distributions across the county: Courage to Call, San Diego Military Outreach Ministries, Support the Enlisted Project, Us4Warriors, Veterans Village of San Diego, and Wounded Warriors Homes. Staff and volunteers from each non-profit will be on hand to help pass out food and provide information on additional services.

“The local military community needs our support now and always, and we are here to provide what they need,” says Bob Kamensky, Chief Strategy Officer at Feeding San Diego and retired Naval Admiral. “Members of the armed forces and their families, as well as veterans, often face unique challenges. We applaud our partners for the services they provide and are honored to be able to provide food for them to get to those in need.”

Through its Feeding Heroes initiative, Feeding San Diego serves active-duty military families and veterans, providing nutritious food when it’s needed. To ensure that military families and veterans get the food assistance they need, Feeding San Diego works with 17 community partners, mostly other nonprofits who directly serve members of the military and veterans, to deliver fresh produce, dry goods, and frozen meat protein. Feeding San Diego’s community partners hold direct distributions for those they serve and also provide additional resources that address the unique challenges presented to those who serve or have served in the armed forces and their families.
