Food Security in the Military: What We Know and Why It Matters

July 27, 2021 • 1:00 – 2:00 pm EDT

Those serving on active duty, in military reserves, or in the National Guard experienced food insecurity at double the national average in recent months, according to nation-wide surveys. And anecdotal evidence points to heightened rates of food insecurity among U.S. veterans during the pandemic. Please join the CSIS Global Food Security Program on Tuesday, July 27th, from 1:00—2:00 p.m. EDT, for a discussion on the state of food insecurity in the military community, and short- and long-term implications for U.S. armed forces.

This event is made possible due to generous support from the Bob Woodruff Foundation.
