For nearly a decade, MAZON has made it a priority to understand and address the unique challenges of military families who struggle with food insecurity. It's unacceptable that tens of thousands of service members are shut out of accessing SNAP and other food assistance programs, and must quietly turn for help to food pantries that exist on or near almost every military base in the U.S. And now, the COVID-19 pandemic continues to exacerbate the financial challenges of military families.
MAZON’s recent report, “Hunger in the Military: Food Insecurity Among Military Families in the U.S.”
documents the unique food security challenges facing military families and outlines several recommendations for long-term, systemic solutions.
America's men and women in uniform fight for our freedom; MAZON is fighting to ensure they have freedom from hunger. Please join us in urging Congress to take immediate action to resolve this shameful and long-overlooked problem.
