Central Falls, RI – USA Veterans & Military Support Foundation (USAVMSF) has received grant funding from Bob Woodruff Foundation (BWF) to support its Food4Vets program to combat food insecurity in RI Veterans.

Don Cox, President of USAVMSF said “Being a part of this local network will be quite a benefit to USAVMSF. While we have specific expertise in food distributions systems, there is always more to learn and we look forward to working with other partners and learning from them and the Bob Woodruff Foundation.”
