Serving Heroes

Nothing offers an opportunity to bond and give thanks quite like breaking bread together. We’re showing gratitude to our defenders by serving them hearty, classic American meals nationwide and at military outposts in Germany and Korea.


Food & Fellowship

Serving Heroes is more than a meal. It’s an opportunity to form connections and strengthen communities. It’s a simple way to remind our heroes that America cares and is grateful for their service. We’re showing our gratitude face- to-face with a plate, a smile, and a handshake.


expanding locations

We’re hosting Serving Heroes at military bases and transportation hubs, police departments, fire houses, and veterans senior living facilities all across the country.

The Stories

Our Impact


I'd like to thank Gary and the Foundation for providing a free lunch here at our USO. There are folks out there in the civilian world, like Gary, who constantly pour into our community and I am so thankful. The lunch provided today benefitted at least 150-200 Jr. Soldiers. Having been in their shoes 17 years ago, I can tell you it really hit the spot.
