MAZON lands #MilitaryHunger victory – but we need your help!
For many years, MAZON has been leading a national effort to eliminate an unintended barrier to SNAP access for currently-serving military families. It is unconscionable that those who make great sacrifices for our country should struggle with hunger - yet tens of thousands of military families have had to turn in desperation to food pantries that operate on or near every military base in the U.S. Working closely with our partners at the National Military Family Association, MAZON has secured a provision in the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) that passed the U.S. House of Representatives on July 12th, 2019. This provision would establish a new allowance for certain eligible military families to ensure that they can meet their most basic needs, including food.
Please join MAZON in urging all members of Congress to prioritize the Military Family Basic Needs Allowance provision in NDAA negotiations and address this long-overdue issue of military hunger.
