Our Mission

Our mission is to continue to serve those who served in the military through supplemental food sources.

Our pantry is the only one in the state of Arkansas that is set up strictly for military Veterans. We do not require anything except proof of military service. DD Form 214 or VA healthcare I.D or military I.D cards. We welcome Guardsman, Reservist and Retirees.

100% Volunteer Driven

How We Started

I approached my friend and fellow co-worker from military days at Little Rock AFB. Co-founders: Joe & Joyce Short. They were key and very important in the startup of this. EVEYTHING was started from scratch.

We contacted a Veterans food pantry in NEW York and went under FEED OUR VETS for the 1st year. They brought us in under thier 501 c3 until we were able to get our own. in MAY 2018 we broke away under our own 501 c 3 and became FEED THE VETERANS.

Joe passed away Feb 2020. He will ALWAYS be a part of the pantry and a stone in our foundation.
