Please Join Us

Building Bridges Veterans Initiative was born in 2015. Our mission is simple: to create veteran communities around a weekly or monthly complimentary meal which foster friendship and support in as many communities as we can serve.
You served our country. Now we want to serve you!  
Below are answers to the most common questions.

Who can attend a Building Bridges lunch or dinner?

All veterans are welcome to bring a guest and attend a meal at any location as often as they would like. Your rank, branch, or type of service does not matter. We just want you to join us.

Do I need to become “a member,” sign up, or pay a fee?

  • There is no formal membership required and there are no fees.
  • Building Bridges is an organization built on simplicity.
  • All events are complimentary as a thank you for your service.
  • We like getting a head-count, but RSVP’s are not mandatory.
  • We also appreciate your signing up for our email newsletter, liking our Facebook page, and joining our Facebook Group, but this is not required.

Ok, I’d like to come to an event - what do I do next?

The simplest thing is to just show up at the next event near you, or further away if you feel like a road trip.  

But you may want to email or speak to a member of our team or another Building Bridges vet before you come, which is totally understandable. You can send us a quick note using the form below and we will get in touch with you.

Email us any question to We will get back to you right away!
