COLORADO SPRINGS -

Operation Homefront is giving away a free holiday meal for active duty military families and families from post 9/11 this holiday season. Active duty military E-1 through E-6 and post 9/11 families can register at www.operationhomefront.org.

Operation Homefront distributes 400 holiday meals to military families through its annual Holiday Meals for Military Program. The distribution event will take place at the Safeway at 6250 S Academy Blvd in Colorado Springs, Saturday, Nov 18.

The Holiday Meals for Military program began Thanksgiving 2009 as a result of an encounter involving a soldier, his wife, and infant with a handful of groceries they could not afford at a supermarket in Utica, NY.

An employee of the store picked up the tab for the family, since that the program has from initially providing 500 meal kits to military families in 2009 to nearly 7,000 nationally this holiday season.

Those who enter must register online by Thursday, Nov 16, where they will be able to pick up groceries necessary for a full holiday meal. To register and reserve a meal, go to the website, and click on the event.
