More than one in four veterans from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan struggle to put food on the table. And the unfortunate truth is, many of those veterans suffering in your community do not qualify for federal nutrition assistance, making it even more difficult to gain access to proper nutrition.



To alleviate food insecurity for veteran men and women, Humana, the VFW, and Oak Street Health have partnered to host the Feeding America Drive through 20 collection points across the Midwest. Running from April 19-May 19 in tandem with National Military Appreciation Month, the food drive will provide for struggling veterans and raise mainstream awareness of hunger proliferation within the veteran community.



The drive begins April 19th and continues until May 19th. For more information, visit or contact the closest Oak Street Provider which can be found at It is free to donate.
