Procter & Gamble – ‘Meals for Military’ helps feed Utah military families
Saturday, Procter & Gamble and Kent’s Market partnered with Operation Homefront to host a drive-through “Meals for Military” event in Roy, Utah.
The event, hosted in honor of Military Appreciation Month, served 200 military families from the nearby Hill Air Force Base.
Several companies participated in the event where families were given donated meals
“We appreciate all that military families do for our country and are thrilled Operation Homefront invited us to be a part of this wonderful event,” said Rob Prigmore, the Director of Kent’s Market in Roy.
We hope to maintain our relationship with Operation Homefront and will continue to look for opportunities to show appreciation and support for those in the military. Thanks to all of the great members that serve. God bless each of you and your families and God bless this wonderful country, The United States of America.
According to an Operation Homefront press release, in 2020, the national nonprofit served its 500,000th military family member since the program officially began in 2010.
Meals for the Military is part of Operation Homefront’s larger “Holiday Meals for the Military”. The Holiday Meals for Military program began in Utica, N.Y. after a soldier and his family could not afford groceries. A store employee offered to take care of the expenses and their generosity led to the creation of the program.
In addition to distributing meals in November and December, Operation Homefront holds Meals for Military events throughout the year for Easter, Independence Day, Veterans Day, and more.
