When you’re hungry you aren’t just in need of food, you can also feel down about yourself and your future.   That makes everything else more exaggerated, and possibly even worse.  You have to be able to feed yourself and your family before you can work on other issues.

That’s why your local VSO, VA, Second Harvest and a host of Community Resources related to Hunger on this site, have so many resources to get you hooked up with some good, wholesome groceries.

That includes sources you can use on a regular basis while they get you help to file a VA compensation claim or appeal or help with training and employmentphysical or emotional issues, etc.

In addition, there may also be Sate and Local Government resources for you.

Non-VA LOCAL HELP

Know A Vet? presents this information and these national resource directories, not as a recommendation of any specific service or provider, but as a starting point for your own research.

Please feel free to use the check sheets Before, During and After the Medical Appointment at https://www.knowavet.org/before-during-and-after-a-medical-appointment/and Choosing a Medical Service Provider, at https://www.knowavet.org/choosing-a-medical-service-provider/, to help you in your search for the best help for your individual circumstances.

In addition, there may be other federal, state and local government or private resources for your individual needs.  A VSO counselor https://www.knowavet.org/office-of-vet-services/  may be able to help you find them.

While we strongly urge you to take advantage of all you have earned through your service, we understand there are many reasons why you may prefer non-VA service providers. Here are some places to start:
