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.
DO YOU HAVE YOUR VA ID CARD?
Receiving benefits from the VA begins with obtaining your VA ID card. You can apply at your local VA office, or online by clicking here.
In Leon County you can go to the Sergeant Ernest I. "Boots" Thomas VA Clinic at 2181 East Orange Avenue in Tallahassee, FL
NEW AGENT ORANGE RELATED DISEASES
Bladder cancer, Hypothyroidism, and Parkinsonism has been added to the Department of Veterans Affairs' list of conditions linked to Agent Orange herbicide exposure in Vietnam.
This corrects 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.
