We recently learned about US Foods’ latest partnership, this time teaming up with the Military Family Advisory Network (MFAN). The partnership will include a $250,000 contribution to the “Helping Communities Make It” program, which seeks to empower communities in need through hunger relief, culinary education, and disaster relief.

We are honored to partner with an innovative and deeply committed organization like MFAN, and I look forward to our collaboration.”

As a press release explained, this is the distributor’s first national hunger relief partnership supporting military families; US Foods selected MFAN based on the nonprofit’s innovative program, the MFANetwork, which connects military families to critical resources through collaborative, impact-driven, and authentic community engagements.

US Foods announced national partnership with the Military Family Advisory Network, including a $250,000 contribution to the organization’s “Helping Communities Make It” programThe partnership will support a variety of programmatic efforts to alleviate military food insecurity, including:

  • Permanent Change of Station (PCS) Pantry Restock Box

Shannon Razsadin, Chief Executive Officer, Military Family Advisory Network“MFAN’s latest survey shows that those who moved within the last two years (41.1 percent) and active-duty families (21.5 percent) are among those most commonly experiencing food insecurity,” Shannon Razsadin, CEO of Military Family Advisory Network. “Thanks to generous partners like US Foods, we are providing dignified support through innovative, scalable, and measurable solutions. These collaborative initiatives show military families that they are not alone and that their service and sacrifice are seen and appreciated—and that truly matters.”

In addition, US Foods recently served as a premier ‘Healthy Bodies’ sponsor of MFAN’s Solutions Summit on June 27, where policymakers, military advocates, and corporate partners developed actionable solutions for the military and veteran community. To read more about this partnership, click here.
