Since 2010, the National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA) and the Department of Defense have supported OneOp in delivering evidence-based programming focused on improving the well-being of military families.
This year, the newest series within the Military Family Readiness Academy streamlines the efforts of these two agencies into a single focus: to expand food security in military families.
“We appreciate that the OneOp team is emphasizing food and nutrition security for military families. In defending the freedom and security of our country, these families deserve to also be on the frontline of receiving the evidence-based education that can promote self-sufficiency, nutritional health, and well-being.“–Brent Elrod, USDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture
We are honored to have the full support of NIFA, and our longtime advocate, Brent Elrod. Please read the attached letter of support from Mr. Elrod to learn more about NIFA’s dedication to nutrition security.
