National Food Truck Program

The Coalition has proudly partnered with the national non-profits Feed the Children and Blue Star Families in hosting food truck events across the country for military families in need. Together we were able to feed over 9,200 veterans and active duty military families over the past few years.  Hundreds of supporters and volunteers in each community have continued to rally around the mission and we have received extra help from companies like BB&T, Home Depot and Amazon Fresh. In addition to the food and hygiene boxes we were also able to distribute thousands of children’s books and a special edition James Patterson books to adults. With the long term effects of COVID many military families are still struggling so we are working on plans to feed 3,600 veterans and their families through our 2021 Food Truck events.
