Honoring All Who Served

 

The “Honoring All Who Served” Program includes 12 monthly breakfast events called “Waffles for Warriors” events and four quarterly supper events called the “Honoring All Who Served” events. All of these events are free to attend and open to all Veterans, Active Service Members and Military Families.

Honoring All Who Served Supper Events include a hot meal; a box of groceries, fresh produce from local gardeners when in season, clothing, hygiene items, haircuts, and occasionally gift cards and special offers from local businesses. These events also include a resource fair of representatives from other agencies who provide free services to Veterans. Whether you just need a social outing or are looking for specific resources, these events are fun and provide a wide variety of services all in one evening.

Waffles for Warriors events include waffles, sausage, eggs, juice and coffee, groceries and information about other Veterans services.
