WEB Notes: This is extremely sad considering what our men and woman are being asked to do overseas. To constantly be in harms way and many are coming home injured, maimed and dead. 25% of those who survive get the opportunity to eat at a food bank as repayment for their services.
(Source: Military) – A new study suggests that 25 percent of troops in active duty, Guard and the Reserve use food banks to provide groceries and meals for themselves or their families.
The study sponsored by Feeding America, the nation’s largest food bank network, is conducted once every four years and was based on data collected in 2012. It found that four percent of surveyed households who used a food bank contained a currently serving military member.
Based on those results, Feeding America officials estimated that 620,000 of their 46.5 million customers, or about 25 percent of the military population in 2012, used food banks. – Read More – Military
