440 boxes, containing 16,122 pounds of food and non-food items, were distributed through the MilitaryShare Program in 2019.
MilitaryShare provides private food distributions throughout the county at specially designated sites for veterans, active duty, and inactive military personnel and their families who are struggling to make ends meet. Distributions occur every other month throughout the year.
MilitaryShare is funded by donations which help to subsidize the Food Bank’s food and transportation expenses. With your donation of $30.00, you can sponsor a veteran or current military family for one food distribution. To learn how you or your organization can sponsor a MilitaryShare distribution in your community, please contact us at (724) 981-0353.
Feeding America, in collaboration with Feeding San Diego, was featured on the TODAY Show to highlight the importance of feeding military families. We at the CFWMC have created the MilitaryShare Program to fulfill this local need.
