Food Bank


Food Bank History:

Starting with the very first meeting of the Catholic War Veterans Post 1947 in 2006, members were asked to bring canned and dry goods items for establishing a food bank to assist Veterans and families in need. This effort has expanded over the past decade with the invaluable assistance of individuals, churches, businesses, other veterans units, radio stations, charitable organizations, and the Southern Nevada Veterans Administration Volunteer Services Program to supply needed food to an average of 23 needy veterans and families per month.

In June 2011, our 501(c)(3) Public Charity, the Catholic Veterans of Nevada Charity Foundation (DBA) Veterans Care Assistance Program or (VCAP), was established to receive grants from donors in support of the Post 1947's welfare program.

Each November Post members and Foundation volunteers deliver Thanksgiving food baskets averaging $100.00 each to needy veterans and families. During the year, supplies of canned food, dry goods, and hygiene product are delivered to veterans and families as needed.

Food Bank Operation:

Since most of the veterans and families in need do not have adequate transportation, Catholic War Veterans Post 1947 members and Foundation volunteers volunteer to deliver the food to the needy. Requests for assistance are screened by the Veterans Administration Welfare Division. Frequently, Food Store gift cards are given to the clients for perishable items, such as produce and milk, and to cover items, such as baby food, that are not normally available at the Food Bank.

The following pictures show the arrangement of the Food Bank after a very welcome donation:
