Semper Fi Fund
Food Assistance for Wounded, Ill, and Injured Veterans
While our nation’s veterans and their families are facing many of the same challenges as other Americans during the COVID-19 pandemic, their difficulties are often exacerbated by issues related to their military service. Since the COVID-19 pandemic began, as many as 40% of veterans and military families have experienced food insecurity. Food insecurity threatens the mental and physical health of our veterans, especially those with pre-existing conditions, such as physical disabilities, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), traumatic brain injury (TBI), and life-threatening illnesses. This BWF grant will support Injured Marine Semper Fi Fund’s emergency financial relief efforts to provide food and shelter assistance to 80 veteran households.
