"Hungry" is no way to spend childhood

Every day The Salvation Army helps cure hunger by providing nutritious meals to neighbors in need.

Here in Michigan, one out of six children face food insecurity.

The Salvation Army works to ensure that every member of our community has the food they need to thrive. If you face hunger, we want you to know that you are not alone.

Why Sally's Kitchen?

“There are times when a person needs help, myself and many others are in the same boat. I think the good Lord has provided us a place to eat lunch. The people at The Salvation Army provides a good meal six days a week. The food is well prepared and the volunteers are exceptional, kind, caring people. I believe these people deserve our daily thank you’s. We do indeed! These good people are not only good for the city of Battle Creek but I know the good Lord is blessing them and holds them close.” -- Paul T. Battle Creek, MI
