This study explored the use of food distribution resources among military families who applied for supplemental childcare support during the COVID-19 pandemic (N = 8,326 Army & Air Force families).
T/F: 20% of military families reported using food distribution resources at least once in the past 12 months. Overall, these families tended to report higher financial wellbeing (e.g., capacity to absorb a financial shock, being on track with financial goals).
The Military REACH team sought to identify available research on the provision of community resources in the domains of housing, healthcare, education, employment, sense of safety, connecting with neighbors, relationship building, and integration.
