As many as 160,000 active-duty enlisted service members have difficulty getting enough food.

How is it that thousands of our military are fighting food insecurities when our military is one of the most well-funded institutions? Most Americans don’t realize that 29% of our military are food insecure. Many of these families and individuals depend on Food Banks to eat. In 2008 The Food and Nutrition Act dictated that food allowances count as income in calculating eligibility to receive SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) benefits and this disqualified thousands of military families from receiving this benefit. Why is this still a law?
