San Diego, California (PRWEB) June 06, 2016
Texas based nonprofit, Soldiers’ Angels, announces the expansion of its popular Veteran Mobile Food Pantry to serve the San Diego area. Since the inception of the Veteran Mobile Food Pantry service in September of 2015, Soldiers’ Angels has served over 1800 veteran families at its headquarters in San Antonio, Texas.
After months of building the program in the San Antonio area, Soldiers’ Angels is expanding the service to other major cities across the country—the first of which will be San Diego. Partnering with local food banks, the goal of this service is to provide food relief to low income veterans and their families on a monthly basis.
“Soldiers’ Angels is proud to be able to provide food relief to our veterans and their families. No veteran who served their country proudly should ever have to worry about going hungry or finding their next meal for their spouse and children” said Amy Palmer, President and CEO of Soldiers’ Angels. “As citizens of this great country it is the least we can do to give back to those who have given so much for our freedom.”
The inaugural San Diego event will be held at American Legion Post 434 in Chula Vista on Thursday, June 9th, 2016 from 11:00am – 2:00pm. Veterans interested in receiving food relief at this event must sign up ahead of time via the following link: https://soldiersangels.formstack.com/forms/sandiegofoodpantry.
Those interested in sponsoring or volunteering at future San Diego food pantry events should contact Soldiers’ Angels at (210)629-0020.
