LOCAL FOOD DISTRIBUTIONS
Tallahassee Veterans Outreach (TVO) recognizes there are Veterans and their families who are facing difficulties and in the need for food. We wanted to share available information on local "Food Distributions". Hopefully, this is helpful. Please share this information with persons in need and/or with other agencies that provide services to Veterans.

FOUR NEW AGENT ORANGE RELATED DISEASES
Congress FY21 NDAA Bill adds: Bladder cancer, Hypothyroidism, & Parkinsonism to the 14 Agent Orange-related diseases. Congress passed the FY21 National Defense Authorization Act by an overwhelming and veto-proof margin.
Vietnam Veterans of America asked President Trump to sign the NDAA, which will add four
Agent Orange-related diseases—bladder cancer, hypothyroidism, & Parkinsonism—to the
Department of Veterans Affairs list of conditions linked to herbicide exposure in Vietnam.
This legislation will correct a long-lingering injustice, allowing our afflicted Vietnam veterans to
receive the care and benefits they have earned by their service in our long-ago, unpopular war.
