Addressing Food Insecurity in Military and Veteran Families
Food insecurity is a complicated issue, and several factors give rise to its prevalence across all military- and Veteran-connected families — no matter their rank. Research is just now starting to catch up to what is already known:
Addressing food insecurity in the military and Veteran community is not a matter of financial literacy. The unique challenges that service members, past and present, and their families face — from spouse un- and underemployment, to child care costs, student loans, and out-of-pocket living expenses — contribute to the complexities that lead to the inaccessibility of nutritious foods.
That is why Blue Star Families is committed to making food insecurity a thing of the past by rallying around military and Veteran families, delivering military and civilian resources to those in need and empowering them to thrive.
