MAZON: A Jewish Response to Hunger

Tell Congress to end hunger for military families now!

It is sad and shocking that many current and former servicemen and women find themselves struggling to put food on the table for themselves and their families. Some currently serving in the armed forces  find that their pay as enlisted personnel won’t fully cover their living expenses and they face a barrier preventing them from qualifying for assistance from SNAP. Some veterans experience difficulty transitioning back to civilian life and the workforce, waiting extended periods of time for disability determinations, or struggling to make ends meet when disability pay is low.
Those who make significant sacrifices for our country should never struggle to put food on the table and our public officials must do more to address this unacceptable and long-ignored problem.
Email your Members of Congress to urge them to address food insecurity challenges for active duty military families and veterans.
