Request Emergency Food Assistance


Since 2000 the USO of Metropolitan Washington-Baltimore has provided emergency food assistance to service members and military families experiencing financial difficulties. Based on the number of requests for assistance USO-Metro has received from service members, chaplains, family service centers and Commands requesting our assistance, we have expanded the program and now have food pantries at the USO Center locations listed below.

Eligibility: Primarily E6 and below service members serving on active duty service and their spouse. However, all military members may qualify depending on finical circumstances, number of family members, and situational needs.

Food Pantry Locations:

NSA Bethesda Cassidy Wilfong (703) 744-0847 4565 Taylor Road, Bldg. 83 Bethesda, MD 20889

Fort Belvoir (571) 267-2080 5940 9th Street Fort Belvoir, VA 22060


USO-Metro also has a limited supply of food and grocery store gift certificates for military families in need. If it is a severe situation that requires more assistance than what is offered through the Food Pantry please contact the staff member below. Qualifications for this Emergency Food Assistance program usually requires a referral from chaplains, family service centers, or Commands and is a one-time use.
