The Berrien County Health Department is hosting a veteran food basket giveaway on Wednesday afternoon, Dec. 7.

The event will distribute 150 food baskets from 1-3 p.m. in the parking lot of the Health Department’s Benton Harbor office, 2149 E. Napier Ave.

The baskets will contain a variety of food items including fresh produce, a turkey, bottled water, dessert and more, as well as personal care products. In addition to the food basket giveaway, the Health Department will provide at-home COVID-19 tests.

The Michigan Veterans Affairs Agency is partnering with Berrien County Veterans Services, as well as the Battle Creek VA Medical Center, Whirlpool Corp, Berrien County Health Department, Boss Services and other community groups, to host this event.

Proof of veteran’s status is required. An on-site team member will be available to confirm the status of veterans who do not have identification.

Organizers ask that those in need enter the parking lot using the main entrance on Napier Avenue.
