FOOD4VETS PROGRAM TO PROVIDE MEALS TO VETERANS IN NEW HAMPSHIRE AND MAINE ON MAY 4 AND MAY 6
May 1, 2020
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – For the past four weeks, the Patriots and Revolution have teamed with the USA Veterans & Military Support Foundation to provide “vital food packages” to veterans, military families and veteran service organizations. These packages contain non-perishable foods and nutritionist-developed recipes to provide three meals a day for two people for 14 days.
Since the program’s inception, more than 1.4 million meals have been assembled and distributed to veterans in need. The food packages have been available for pick up at six different locations across Massachusetts – including Gillette Stadium in Foxborough – but meals are also being delivered to veterans, military families and veteran service organizations, helping to meet the needs in other New England states.
On Monday, May 4, a New England Patriots truck will arrive at the Anheuser-Busch Brewery, located at 221 Daniel Webster Highway in Merrimack, N. H. From 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., veterans, military families and veteran service organizations will be able to pick up these vital food packages at this location.
Two days later, on Wednesday, May 6, that same Patriots truck will make its way to the Cross Insurance Center, located at 515 Main Street in Bangor, Maine. Meals will be available for pick up from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. that day. All pickups must be scheduled in advance by visiting the links below:
Monday, May 4 – Anheuser-Busch Brewery – Schedule Pick Up
Wednesday, May 6 – Cross Insurance Center – Schedule Pick Up
Volunteers, including those representing Anheuser-Busch and Cross Insurance, will be on-site to assist with the distribution at each location. All aspects of this operation will be compliant with the Center for Disease Control’s policies and will emphasize social distancing.
“These are unprecedented times, and we must do all we can to meet the immediate needs of our veterans and their families,” said USA Veterans and Military Support Foundation’s founder and CEO Don Cox. “Veterans with injuries and service-connected disabilities are our nation’s most susceptible and are at greatest risk today. Many are coping with a weakened immune systems, increased isolation and financial hardship. We do all we can to help these veterans and their families through these immensely challenging times and thank all of our partners whose assistance match our commitment to provide five million meals to veterans in need throughout New England.”
