San Antonio is "Military City USA" and we have been proud to partner with MFAN on helping ensure no veteran or active member faces hunger. The MFAN is profession, organized, and brings out the best in their partners. And most importantly, MFAN makes life better for those who have served. Great organization.

I have enjoyed working with Military Family Advisory Network. Working with them to help feed the military community in our community has connected me closer with the issue of military hunger and the people who are directly impacted by the issue. They are helping to connect a nationwide issue with state participation in their 1 Million Meals Challenge.

MFAN is an impressive partner. Their "1 Million Meals Challenge" has inspired communities and stakeholders in Washington state to band together in ways that we haven't before. And their "whole team" approach brings real energy and confidence to the work that we do together.

I volunteered at the MFAN 1 Million Meals Challenge distribution event near JBLM. The entire MFAN team and partners organized an incredibly complicated event into a streamlined, wholehearted, powerfully impactful resource to provide direct support of healthy food to our military and veteran families. It is truly amazing to witness the power of data extracted from a national survey bloom into a movement of people and organizations coming together to support our military families. MFAN is an organization of conviction and action! This challenge is a giant undertaking and they have shown the nation what a small team of dedicated professionals can do when passion is at the heart of their work.
