Vittles for Vets
Vittles for Vets promotes helping veterans who have fallen on hard times by giving them a “hand up.” The word “vittles” is most often used in the South. It is a Southern variation of the word victuals, and it means “food” or “nourishment.”
Qualifying veterans receive a $50 food gift card each week. The card must be used to purchase nutritious food (meat, vegetables, dairy). Junk food (chips, soda, pastries) is forbidden, and there is a “zero tolerance” policy of no alcohol or tobacco. Purchase of these will result in automatic termination from the program with NO possibility of reconsideration.
The program relies solely on the contributions/donations. The annual cost per enrolled veteran is $2600. For every dollar donated, ninety-six cents goes directly to ease the suffering of our needy veteran community.
Vittles for Vets will never turn away a qualifying veteran. Our goal is “Helping those who served to protect our freedoms.”
