Since 2000 USO of Metropolitan Washington has been providing 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 4 of our 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.
