American Veteran Food Assistance Program
We are a Community Based Direct Service Organization. We operate on the front line distributing food to the hungry, needy, and especially to those who live with food insecurity. As one of the largest food distributors in Miami Dade County we provide the education, organization, and empowerment necessary to eliminate hunger, food insecurity, and poverty in the State of Florida. We coordinate by establishing alliances with others. We network and partner with social service agencies and other NPO's in the local community.
American Veteran Food Assistance Home Delivery Program
The American Veteran Food Assistance Program also delivers groceries, on a weekly basis to our Veterans who are experiencing functional impairment. Such impairment can be a physical, mental, social condition or cognitive deficit that affects their ability to perform activities of daily living. These individuals are usually out-patients of the VA Spinal Cord Center and live within Miami-Dade County. . Participants in the program receive groceries to last for up to 5 days, along with fresh produce, meats, and other food items. For more information on this program contact 786-306-1304.
American Veteran Newspaper Job Locator Services
The American Veteran Newspaper job locator is located on the front page of our website. It is downloadable, and used by several of our networking agencies. It contains several hundred current employment opportunities that are available, not only for our Veterans but for anyone who is actively seeking employment. The job locator consists of the contact person, job position, location and phone number. This information is updated monthly. In addition, we distribute 100 Miami Dade County Metro-Transit passes,that are good for a 30 day period. These passes are for our non-Veteran clients seeking employment. We have been offering this service through our website for over the past 16 years.
