Our pay it forward, C5BDI giveback continues! Our team recently committed resources and funding to support Vet First. Thank you very much to our founders Cierra and Michael Weatherly from our team for recommending such an outstanding cause. Vet First, Inc. (Vet First) is a first-of-its-kind 501c3 non-profit dedicated to enhancing the wellbeing of US Veterans and providing organic and sustainable food to those in need.
Starting during the COVID pandemic, Vet First has employed and worked with USMC, Army, and Navy Veterans to produce 1,000+ pounds of food, 100% of which has been donated to local food banks. They are utilizing a small farm in the Shenandoah Valley in Virginia as their testbed and hope to roll out this model to additional farms not only in Virginia but in the entire United States.
