Goal: 40,000 Progress: 21,976
Sponsored by: The Veterans Site

America's veterans have sacrificed so much to defend our country and stand up for what they believe. They've risked their lives in order to keep those of us at home safe. That's why it's so important these brave individuals are taken care of when they return from service.

Countless veterans today are not receiving the support they need, even when it comes down to a necessity as basic as food. Many former service members and their families are in danger of going hungry or having to make impossible choices between purchasing food or paying for other basic necessities.

We need to care for those who have laid down their lives for us. There is simply no reason ANY veteran should be denied the basic right to food. Sign the petition asking Senator Bernie Sanders, Chairman of the Senate Veterans' Affairs Committee, to make it a priority that all veterans have access to food and/or meals.

Dear Senator Sanders,

I would like to begin by thanking you for your commitment to the veterans and service members of America. As the Chairman of the Senate Veterans' Committee, you have shown true dedication to helping veterans in all facets of their lives.

However, there is still much to be done. It's appalling that so many veterans return home only to find themselves poor and without support or resources. And many of these veterans are going hungry.

Those who have sacrificed their lives for our safety at home shouldn't have to struggle to meet basic daily human needs. It's deeply upsetting that so many former service members can barely make ends meet from day to day.

I am writing to ask that you make it your priority that no veterans are going hungry and being denied this basic right to food. The first step in honoring our soldiers is providing them with sustenance and nutrition so they are better equipped to take charge of other parts of their lives.

Thank you for your time.
