Food for Veterans Goes Live!

Today we served over 140 people with over 2,000 lbs. of free food!

Our veterans and their families proudly serve and sacrifice, putting the priority of our Country before their own. As we continue to send care-packages, we also want to support our Veterans and Military families in need right here on the Homefront. That is why Support Siouxland Soldiers is launching “Food for Veterans”. We will be distributing a weeks worth of Free Food to our Veterans and their families as a way to thank them for their service and let them know that we appreciate their sacrifices.

If you are a Veteran and would like to receive free food, please email us at or Call (712) 541-8020, or fill out the form below.   All we need to know is your name, how many people are in your family and a way to contact you. We will have your food ready for pick-up on these upcoming dates.
