One of the most important ways we can honor our nation’s veterans is by ensuring they have access to the nutrition they need to thrive.
Millions of veterans face food insecurity. According to a U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Economic Research Service report, 11.1 percent of veterans between the ages of 18 to 64 lived in households reporting food insecurity. After controlling for demographic characteristics that normally predict food insecurity, such as age, educational attainment, and income, this report found that risk of food insecurity is 7.4 percent higher among veterans than nonveterans ages 18–64.

This September, the White House Conference on Hunger, Nutrition, and Health took place with the goal of ending hunger in the U.S. by 2030. It was the first conference of its kind in more than 50 years. The previous conference helped elevate hunger as a national priority and sparked major improvements and expansions to the federal nutrition programs.
Velle Perkins, an anti-hunger advocate with lived experience with food insecurity, attended the event. Below she shares her reflections on the Conference.

Add to the list of those expressing concerns about restrictive monetary policy: farmers. According to a Purdue University survey, agricultural “producers are concerned about the impact U.S. interest rate policy will have on their farms and the ag economy with over one-third of crop producers choosing it as the most important policy issue for their farming operation.” That finding predated the latest interest rate hike that the Federal Reserve announced on November 2, as part of its anti-inflation policy.
