“We’re proud that the industries we serve do so much to reach out to veterans. They recognize their value as citizens, consumers, partners and employees.”
Princeton, N.J. (PRWEB) November 10, 2011
FoodAndBeveragePeople.com has published an overview of the tremendous promotional, practical and philanthropic efforts the food and beverage industry is doing to celebrate Veterans Day this year.
Honoring veterans is incumbent upon us all, and especially now, as up to 40,000 troops prepare to leave Iraq – a war that, according to The Associated Press, killed over 4,400 million military men and women and wounded over 32,000.
As with so many fine causes, the food and beverage industry is stepping up to honor those who have served. Restaurants are offering veterans free or discounted meals on Veterans Day or throughout the week, some manufacturers are contributing financially to veteran-focused non-profit organizations and others are making specific efforts to employ those who served so well both domestically and overseas.
“In today’s economic environment, a little encouragement can go a very long way,” said Gigi Cohen, publisher of FoodAndBeveragePeople.com. “We’re proud that the industries we serve do so much to reach out to veterans. They recognize their value as citizens, consumers, partners and employees.”
