"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.

Food Assistance Programs

The Salvation Army of Jackson offers a variety of food assistance programs throughout the year to help fight hunger in our community.

Emergency Food Pantry

The Salvation Army's Emergency Food Pantry, the largest in Jackson County, annually provides nearly 5,000 households with food assistance. In partnership with local businesses, restaurants and individual donors, those in need receive nutritious food. We're proud to offer fresh fruits & vegetables, meats, dairy, and bread while supplementing with non-perishable items like peanut butter and whole grains.
