America's veterans are #StillServing in communities across the country. The inaugural VFW Day of Service is May 7, 2022 - marking the start of veteran-led community service projects throughout the month. VFW Posts, VFW members, community advocates and veterans of every stripe are leading the charge to serve our neighbors and fellow citizens - just as we always have.
The VFW Silver State Post 3396, alongside our community partners of 39 North, is planning a project to beautify our downtown corridor of Victorian Ave. We are planning an area of beautification to pick-up trash, plant flowers and plants. We will have an opportunity for the community to donate to the Food Bank of Northern Nevada and support the VFW and Humana " Uniting to Combat Hunger" campaign. So, you may ask how can you or your organization assist in this day of service? Well, we are in need of volunteers to come out to assist in this massive project, and we are in need of a few dollars to purchase the remaining items for the planting areas. Please reach out to me for any information your organization will need to support this endeavor.
Healthy Food. Every Person. Every Day.
Did you know? More than a third of the food distributed through the Food Bank of Northern Nevada is fresh produce.
We all know that a healthy diet that includes fresh fruits and vegetables is so important in our overall health. Unfortunately, for so many of our neighbors facing hunger, fresh produce has become a luxury that they simply can't afford. That's why we work so hard here at the Food Bank to focus on not just filling plates, but ensuring that we're filling bellies with a good variety of nutritious foods. Through programs like Mobile Harvest, Produce on Wheels, and our partner food pantries, our guests are able to access healthy options nutritious meals and snacks.
Every $1 raised through the Virtual Food Drive helps us to provide 3 healthy, wholesome meals for neighbors in need. Together, we can solve hunger.
