Veterans4USA became a partner of Greater Lansing Food Bank during the COVID-19 pandemic when many people, especially those who are veterans, struggled with food insecurity. Together, Veterans4USA and GLFB provide monthly food distributions at the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) post in Alma and the Clare-Farwell American Legion post in Farwell. Veterans4USA also helped the Clare-Farwell American Legion become an official food pantry of GLFB, creating more consistent access to nutritious food for veterans facing hunger.
Mike Rodgers, CEO of Veterans4USA, hopes to bring in more partnerships like GLFB to strengthen the surrounding community and broaden the network of support for veterans and their families. “We won’t be satisfied because we know that more people are struggling, whether it’s veterans, civilians, children or seniors. We all can do more,” he commented.
