Veterans Canteen Service (VCS)

Established in 1946, Veterans Canteen Service (VCS) was created to provide articles of merchandise and services at reasonable prices to Veterans enrolled in VA healthcare system, caregivers, and visitors. Since its conception, VCS’ mission continues, incorporating a strategic Veteran-centric approach emphasizing the importance of service to Veterans and supporting VA’s overall mission. VCS provides retail, food, coffee, and vending services across the country.

Daro2020 Graduates

During this graduation season, VCS would like to recognize and congratulate the accomplishments of our 2020 graduates. At VCS we’ve had several employees and their family members make this important milestone.

Fresno, CA canteen employee, Daro Vann wasn't able to have the graduation experience like he hoped, so the Fresno canteen team had a small "socially-distant" celebration for him and his family to make up for it!

Thank you for all you do for our Veterans, and congratulations to all of our graduates and their families.

Our VCS staff are working hard to ensure our Veterans, their families, and VA employees have the essential items needed to get through this difficult time. Our order-ahead pick-up program for bulk grocery includes items like frozen meats, and prepared meals to take home. Additionally, we have expanded our offerings in the PatriotStore to include items like milk, eggs, bread, frozen and pantry items. Call your local VA Canteen for more information.
