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.

Food For VetsFood for Vets

Recently, our Perry Point, MD Canteen obtained non-perishable food for the HUD/VASH outreach program. Due to COVID-19, many Veterans who utilized food banks weekly were finding food banks running out of food. HUD/VASH wanted to obtain enough food to provide 100 Veterans with non-perishable food for a week. With the help of VCS, they were able to obtain enough food to meet their goal! Great things happen when working together!
