Operation Homefront to provide 100 Utah military families with holiday meals

operation homefront

ROY, Utah — The national nonprofit Operation Homefront distributed meal kits complete with all the essentials for a traditional holiday meal to pre-registered military families at the Kent’s Market in Roy last Saturday.

During this year’s Holiday Meals for Military®, Operation Homefront will put meals on the tables of more than 13,000 military families nationwide.  The program offers junior- and mid-grade enlisted families, who are often far from loved ones, with all the grocery items necessary to prepare a traditional holiday meal, helping to ease a widely felt financial burden and make the holiday season brighter for those who sacrifice so much on behalf of all Americans.   

As the health and safety of military families, volunteers, and staff are highest priority, this program will be delivered in a drive-through format and will be conducted within local, federal, and CDC guidelines.
