When an opportunity presents itself, jumping on it is critical to our mission at Cook For Vets. Our primary goal is to make a difference in the lives of many Veterans who are without proper and sustained nutrition. As recommendations are made and agencies are named we proceed without hesitation to align and network with others who can provide the names of Veterans in need. In June alone, I have reached out to four local VSOs to see if they are interested in Cook For Vets serving as a resource for meals and groceries on a monthly basis. Gratefully, each of them has eagerly expressed the overwhelming need for what we are able to offer. If we are to eventually grow our mission nationwide, proceeding with caution is unheard of. We are moving full steam ahead to establish ourselves as an organization committed to becoming a stronghold in being part of the solution to the ever-increasing number of Veterans struggling with food scarcity. We at Cook For Vets are determined to make an impact as we serve those living in the Northern Virginia communities. June, by far, has been the most impactful meal delivery to date. With sixty meals and twenty eight bags of groceries delivered this brings our total number of meals delivered to date at one hundred and ninety six along with eighty six bags of groceries since January of 2023. Our accomplishment thus far is gratifying to say the least, but this is just the beginning for Cook For Vets. There is still much more work to be done and lots more Veterans to feed. As our movement of souls feeding souls takes hold we are laying a strong foundation for making a difference in the lives of those who have served and sacrificed.
