Washington, D.C. — U.S. Senator Jon Ossoff is working to end food insecurity for Georgia’s junior enlisted military servicemembers and their families.
Sen. Ossoff is pushing to pass the Military Hunger Prevention Act of 2021, which would help ensure low-income servicemembers, who are often forced to rely on food pantries and food banks, have better access to food and nutrition.
Estimates find roughly one-in-eight military families are currently food insecure.
“It is unacceptable that Georgia’s junior enlisted personnel and military families struggle to afford groceries,” said Sen. Ossoff. “That’s why I’m working to increase benefits and compensation for our service members — to ensure those who serve our country never have to worry about putting food on the table.”
Sen. Ossoff continues to advocate on behalf of Georgia’s servicemembers in all aspects. He is also pushing to pass legislation todeliver combat-disabled veterans the pay they deserve and boost mental health programs for servicemembers.
