Together We Can End Veteran Hunger Scroll down for resources and information that can help connect Veterans with vital nutrition assistance.

No Veteran deserves to face the pain and indignity of hunger.

MAZON: A Jewish Response to Hunger, PsychArmor, and Combined Arms are proud to collaborate on this campaign to raise awareness of and ensure all Veterans can access the food they need.

We know that programs like SNAP are critical to ending Veteran hunger, but many Veterans are eligible and struggle without the assistance they need and deserve.


If you or someone you know is in need of support, start here to get connected with resources near you:

Even if you've applied before or think you may not qualify, recent changes in eligibility may mean you're now eligible for benefits — consider reapplying today.


MAZON: A Jewish Response to Hunger and PsychArmor partnered to develop an educational resource that can help connect food-insecure Veterans with available federal, state, and local assistance. This course is intended to help you understand how food insecurity happens and offer solutions to the problem. In addition to this online course, you can find more resources here.

Your voice can make a difference!

We know that SNAP helps about one million low-income Veterans, but we fear that millions more are struggling without help from the country they served. Take action today to urge our leaders to expand SNAP access for Veterans.

Veteran Stories

You may be surprised to see what hunger looks like today. Veterans and families that have never experienced hunger and poverty are facing empty pantries, and those on the margins who struggle to make ends meet have seen the barriers set before them grow insurmountable.

Joe, Montana

Joe is a disabled Veteran living in Bozeman, Montana with his wife and two children. It took 10 years of financial and health-related hardship before Joe finally qualified for the appropriate disability rating and could access the nutrition support he needed and deserved.
Even though the VA knew about our financial problems and my medical needs, no one ever mentioned any other options for assistance like SNAP. We didn't know they even existed.

Judith, Arizona

Judith is a Veteran from Arizona who spent almost 30 years in the Air Force. Due to a lack of adequate resources from the VA, Judith is regularly forced to choose between paying for food, medical bills, and housing.
We used to be comfortable... but my monthly VA benefits and social security are no longer enough. I have already used up my savings to keep us from becoming homeless... but I can no longer afford food like I used to.

Gabriel, California

Gabriel served as a Marine, based at Camp Pendleton. Despite earning his B.A. and working in the private sector before feeling compelled to serve his country, Gabriel's military paycheck barely makes ends meet.
I’m doing all I can and serving my country, and I have to worry about how I’m going to buy food? I am not ashamed to say, “hey I need help” to be able to feed my family.
