Inflation impacts the purchasing power of service members and their families. This webinar provides an overview of inflation and the expected and unexpected ways inflation may upset a household budget. Learn strategies for managing household spending during challenging financial times, and discover creative ways to maintain food security within a family’s budget.
Among our nation’s active-duty service members and their families, an estimated 24 percent are food insecure. Food insecurity adversely impacts racial/ethnic minority populations, lower-income populations, and rural and remote populations. Additionally, a rise in economic insecurity throughout the Covid-19 pandemic has contributed to increased food insecurity in vulnerable populations. Join OneOp as we focus on expanding food security for the military family and mobilizing family service professionals at federal, state, and local levels to work together on this issue.
