Food Insecurity Among Military Families Worsens Amidst COVID-19 Pandemic
Colleen Heflin, professor of public administration and international affairs in the Maxwell School, was quoted in the Associated Press (AP) story “Thousands of military families struggle with food insecurity” (this hit and other AP hits below were republished in dozens of other mainstream publications). Prof. Heflin was quoted on the same topic in Newsweek and Center for Strategic and International Studies.
In the story for the Associated Press, Heflin discusses the growing issue of food insecurity among military families amidst the pandemic. She discusses the Pentagon’s denial of this problem, saying, “In my experiences, it’s hard to explain this to Department of Defense officials. They find it embarrassing and something they would not like to acknowledge.”
