Vittles for Vets empowers those who have served our country honorably and have fallen on hard times to see a brighter future through the gift of nutritious food.
We hope to further strengthen our program through establishing a support system within the community and beyond. We strive to develop a strong chapter of Vittles for Vets that can be replicated in more areas to serve a larger number of veterans in the state of Virginia and the United States.
Who We Are:
Vittles for Vets is a non-profit 501 C-3 organization that was founded in December 2014 by veterans for veterans. Our primary purpose is to distribute gift cards for nutritious food to qualifying veterans. We also conduct special drives to meet the needs of veterans and their families who have qualified for our program through Virginia veteran services.
We cannot think of a more appropriate story to explain the Vittles for Vets mission.
Many of our needy veterans are like the starfish; all they need is a friendly “hand up” and knowledge that someone cares.
We hope you will find it in your heart to pick up as least one starfish and return it to the safety of Mother Ocean.
