On November 6th, from 5pm – 6pm in Twin Falls, our organization will be hosting a holiday meal distribution event for military families in the area. We will have crafts for the family, refreshments, and each family registered will receive a meal kit containing all the fixings they would need to make a holiday meal at home, plus a gift card to purchase the protein of their choice. Our Holiday Meals for Military program is impactful for military families as many are unable to travel to their extended family to spend the holidays with them, and the cost of a holiday meal is often prohibitive for our military communities.

Families can register for this event at https://events.operationhomefront.org/ and clicking on the “military family login” button. Once they have a profile created, they will be able to register for the event. Registration is required to receive a meal kit.
 
Eligibility to register for this event includes Active Duty, Active and Inactive Guard or Reserves, and Post 9/11 wounded, injured, or ill service members.
 
We are asking families to register no later than 31 October.
