With USA4VETs and MMSF support, Easterseals offers Food4Vets hub providing 13,440 meals for Veterans during coronavirus crisis
April 17, 2020, Norwich, CT – Easterseals Capital Region & Eastern Connecticut is a Distribution Hub for 13,440 meals for Veterans in need.
For veterans throughout Connecticut who have limited access to food due to the coronavirus, USA for Veterans and Military (USA4VETS) and Massachusetts Military Support Foundation have teamed up with Easterseals Veterans Rally Point to distribute meal boxes containing non-perishable, well balanced meals for veterans in need. Each food package contains enough food and nutritionist-developed recipes for two people for two weeks.
On Wednesday, April 15, 2020, thanks to the generosity of Don Cox, the founder of USA4Vets and MMSF, Easterseals Veterans Rally Point staff traveled to Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, MA to receive an initial disbursement of veteran meal boxes. Easterseals Veterans Rally Point will set up the first distribution of meal boxes to Connecticut Veterans on Wednesday, April 22 from their Norwich, CT Facility. For details on how Veterans can sign up for a food box using the required online verification form, please go to:
We are honored to join the team led by USA4Vets and MMSF in the mission to distribute 50,000 meal boxes. We are here for CT Veterans during this health crisis. Together, we can carry on.
