Battling Food Insecurity in the Military This Thanksgiving
US-based food-tech company Nutrient Survival, which develops Special Ops Grade nutrition, is on a mission to shed light on the issue of food scarcity among military members, starting with a turkey drive this Thanksgiving, November 23, in support of US Army Pacific Chaplains’ Operation Helping Hand to show appreciation to active duty military personnel for their service.
“As a veteran-owned and operated company, we know what it means to serve. That’s why we love those who selflessly serve – military, law enforcement, and first responders and are committed to helping them as much as we can, however we can. This year’s donation for turkeys came at a time of need and we intend to be there again in the future,” Eric Christianson, former army ranger and CEO of Nutrient Survival, tells Nutrition Insight.Read More

Military rations are subject to strict government standards, Schwan says. Survival food isn’t, meaning it comes in far greater variety.Read More
