Veteran Meals in a Bag

The Problem

Our goal is for our participants and community to gain knowledge on hunger and homelessness, particularly as it effects our men and women who have served our country in the military.

Our Plan

We will be making 10 meals for 50 homeless veterans living in transitional housing in Enphront, Atlantic City, NJ. There are 10 houses in which approximately 5 veterans live. This project will fund the cost of putting together a full course meal for the five veterans in each house. Each bag will contain 2 boxes of pasta, one jar of spaghetti sauce, one jar of dressing, a fresh salad, a loaf of Italian bread, homemade meatballs, and a pie or a cake. We started this in April 2017 and have continued making meals for veterans. We are up to 850 meals! (as of 8/4/2018)
