We recognize that food insecurity is an issue for many families across the Cape and the Islands, including military and Coast Guard families. The high cost of food and food transportation to the Islands, combined with the lower wages for junior enlisted personnel further exacerbates this issue. We believe that satisfying the food and nutrition needs of those who sacrifice daily to protect us and our way of life is the least we can do. Our food assistance program includes providing food gift cards to local grocery stores, preparation and delivery of holiday meals, and establishment and operation of Self-Serve Food Supply Centers. Plans for two such centers are currently underway, one will be located at our Joint Base Cape Cod foundation offices at 3456 Turpentine Road Buzzards Bay and the other at Coast Guard Station Brant Point on Nantucket Island.
