USDA Partners with Defense to Support Military Families

Wed, 27 Apr 2011 17:41:19 CDT

USDA Partners with Defense to Support Military Families USDA and the Department of Defense have launched a partnership to support military service members and their families. Its the USDA/DoD Military Extension Partnership and according to Undersecretary for Research, Education and Economics Catherine Woteki, it will give the established civilian network of extension offices a greater ability to help service members and their loved ones.

According to USDA, the partnership is aimed at meeting three primary goals to address the emerging needs of military families. The objectives include increasing and strengthening community capacity in support of military families, increasing professional and workforce development opportunities for those working with military families and expanding and strengthening family, childcare and youth development programs.

A proclamation announcing the partnership was signed Wednesday at the 2011 USDA/DoD Family Resilience Conference in Chicago, the first joint conference offered by USDA and Department of Defense to address the needs of todays service members. Nearly two-thousand military personnel, cooperative extension educators and others serving military families came together to identify ways to provide military families with what they need where they live.
