Jerky for Troops

Vacuum packed jerky makes great gifts – gift wrapped or not – for lots of occasions – but have you thought about sending jerky to the troops. The very nature of jerky makes it the perfect snack to ship. Lightweight, good ‘shelf life’ – no refrigeration required (make sure your jerky is properly prepared and vacuum packed) and it’s tasty!

So, for those that like to make their own jerky – or maybe you’ve got some extra jerky sitting around – why not send it to our troops. There are various organizations and groups of people – like military moms united – that package food and other needed items (food and toiletry) and then ship these supplies to the troops overseas.

In addition to jerky, they also need:

  • Coffee
  • Instant drink mixes
  • Sunflower seeds
  • Tuna in foil pouches
  • Protein bars
  • Baby wipes
  • Hand sanitizers
  • Shampoo
  • Eye drops
  • Combs & brushes

If you want to help by making a donation of money or supplies, please contact your local American Legion Post or you can visit the website of the military moms at for more information on how to help.
