In an effort to raise money for the Veteran Farmer Coalition, military veterans are joining together to host the first annual Operation Harvest Dinner in Columbia, South Carolina, Midlands Anchor reports.

Preparing the four-course dinner will be six veterans-turned-top-chefs: Marine Corps veterans Garrett Barry and Brandon Velie; Army veterans Jeff Bannister and Kristian Niemi; Air Force veteran John Sheen; and Navy veteran Anthony DiBernardo.

"This is a way for veterans, who are directly tied to the farms that produce the foods they cook, to give back to the veterans who grow them," Niemi told the website.

"The Farmer Veteran Coalition is a California-based group that works with former military to get them into farming," Velie said, according to The State. The non-profit organization helps over 250 veterans every month to find a career path in agriculture and has provided members with over $80,000 in no-interest loans while "mobilizing veterans to feed America," according to their website.

The dinner will take place at City Roots, the first urban farm in South Carolina, on Tuesday, May 2 from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. Tickets are $125 per person and all proceeds will go towards the Veteran Farmer Coalition.

"Studies have shown farming is beneficial to soldiers suffering from PTSD as they assimilate back into civilian life," Niemi told Midlands Anchor. "If the money we raise at this event can help just one soldier find solace in farming, we've exceeded our goal."
