200 Low-Income Veteran Families Provided with Food Assistance

Soldiers’ Angels Hunger Relief Program hosted a Veteran Mobile Food Distribution earlier this month in the Hagood Stadium parking lot of The Citadel. The event provided food assistance to over 200 low-income, at-risk, and homeless veterans from the Charleston-Area. The distribution was conducted in partnership with The Citadel and the Low Country Food Bank. 

The Hunger Relief Program was introduced to the Charleston area in September 2016 and has since provided monthly food assistance to hundreds of local families.  
 
“This event has had such an impact on low-income veteran families in the Charleston area,” said Soldiers’ Angels President and CEO, Amy Palmer. “Many of these families may not know where their next meal is coming from and the food provided by the Hunger Relief Program has become a lifeline. We look forward to continuing to reach even more local families.” 
 
If you are interested in becoming a part of this monthly event in Charleston, Soldiers’ Angels is always looking for volunteers and sponsors to help continue the Hunger Relief Program.
