Farm2Veteran Celebrates Milestone: Donates 100,000 Farm-Fresh Meals to Veterans in Need Since Inception

Manhattan, Illinois – Farm2Veteran, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing farm-fresh food to Veterans in need is thrilled to announce a major milestone of donating over 100,000 meals to Veterans since its establishment as a non-profit in late 2020.

Since its inception, Farm2Veteran has been committed to addressing food insecurity among Veterans by raising livestock to provide high quality meat and eggs. By forging partnerships with local Veteran organizations and leveraging community support, the organization has made a significant impact on the lives of veterans in now four states – Illinois, Indiana, Michigan and Texas.

The milestone of 100,000 donated meals represents not only nourishment for those in need but also a testament to the power of community collaboration. Farm2Veteran’s innovative approach brings together wholesome, locally-sourced meals, and organizations that house Veterans in need.

“We are overjoyed to reach this remarkable milestone in such a short period,” said Kevin Van Eekeren, founder and CEO of Farm2Veteran. “The dedication of our team, the support of our community, and the passion of our partners have made this achievement possible. We are honored to serve those who have served our nation and to make a tangible impact on their lives through nutritious, farm-fresh meals.”

Farm2Veteran extends its deepest gratitude to all the donors, and community members who have played an integral role in achieving this milestone. Their unwavering support has allowed the organization to make a difference in the lives of Veterans, providing them with not just sustenance but also a renewed sense of hope.

Moving forward, Farm2Veteran remains committed to expanding its reach and impact, ensuring that more Veterans have access to nutritious meals. The organization continues to seek collaborations with individuals and organizations who share the common goal of supporting our nation’s heroes. Farm2Veteran’s first annual fundraiser – Operation Bearcat Pull: Pulling for our Veterans will be taking place on September 9th at Lewis University in Romeoville, Illinois – more information to come.
