Since 2013, Veterans Project & The Family Assistance Campaign has provided free food assistance to more than 20,000 Veterans and their family members, distributing 445,000 lbs. of food. Feed Our Vets mission is to help Veterans in the United States, their spouses and children, whose circumstances have left them on the battlefield of hunger, and to involve the public in fighting Veteran hunger, through: (1) Community food pantries that provide regular, free food to Veterans and their families, (2) Distribution of related goods and services, (3) Public education and outreach.
Power is of two kinds. One is obtained by the fear of punishment
and the other by acts of love. Power based on love
is a thousand times more effective and permanent
then the one derived from fear of punishment.
- Mohandas (Mahatma) Gandhi

true stories of homelessness
true stories of homelessness Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week kicked off last night with a panel entitled "Faces of Homelessness". Two formerly homeless people and a third who is still homeless discussed their paths to and from homelessness. While each panelist had a different story to tell, common themes were that anybody can become hopeless and that sometimes all a homeless person wants is acknowledgement and a smile.
