As we enter the final chapter of finishing our Veterans Market expansion, we are setting our sights on preparing to fill the shelves of this beautiful new space with plenty of food for our Veteran participants. COVID-19 may have depleted our warehouse inventory but we know (and are grateful) that our strong, compassionate community will be there to support our Veterans experiencing food insecurity— just as you were there when we needed help building a village of tiny homes for our heroes.
This Saturday, we invite you to join us in stocking the shelves via a curbside donation drive from 9AM to 1PM. Our staff will be geared up with face masks and ready to bring non-perishable food donations from your car to our warehouse. Just pull up and we’ll take care of the rest!
This new Veterans Market means so much to us because of the dignity it will offer Veterans experiencing food insecurity. It is so very hard for any of us to admit we need support now and then. We designed this Market with that in mind. We don’t want it to feel like a food pantry. We want to extend an invitation to Veterans in need to instead experience a beautiful environment of soothing colors, camaraderie and connection. It’s a “market” just like any other— only one where Veterans don’t have to pay for their food. Our hope is that they will look forward to their weekly visits— to seeing new friends and old, to learning about all the resources available to them and to being treated with the dignity they deserve.
Whether you are able to drop off a few cans or several boxes of supplies, we welcome you on Saturday and appreciate what you do for our Veterans! Thanks to your continued support, over 400 Veterans in our area utilizing our resources know that they are not alone.
If you are unable to attend on Saturday but would like to support our Veterans Market with an online donation, please visit the link below.
We are able to feed a Veteran for one week for $25 and one month for $100.
