Food Security

Military Family Advisory Network

When families are unable to consistently afford or access adequate meals, they face a challenge known as food insecurity. Nearly a fifth (16.6%) of military and veteran families are facing this challenge — skipping meals, choosing between buying food or paying rent, and leaning on food pantries for support when times are particularly tough. No military family should ever have to worry where their next meal is coming from, and that’s where Military Family Advisory Network comes in.
