It's amazing when our community comes together to help others. It's even more amazing when we get to help out AND have a great meal.

Food for Vets is coming up on August 18, 2017 in the field by A&P Master Images in Utica. The goal of this event is to collect food and raise money for a group that does so much good for so many vets - Feed Our Vets. The fun part is, this will be a food truck event featuring some of the area's best vendors. A portion of their proceeds will go to support Feed Our Vets, along with the trucks offering a 10% discount to all Vets. Representatives from Feed Our Vets will also be on site with their military vehicles and humvees to collect food and donations.
