"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.

Produce Distribution

Fresh produce is provided in all three counties (Clinton, Ingham and Eaton.) The service is prodvided to anyone that is low income or in need of produce. This program runs from January to Mid-October.The following shows the schedule & locations:

Clinton County: 1st, 3rd and 5th Thursday of the month 

Eaton County: 2nd and 4th Thursday of the month

Ingham County: Every Wednesday of the month

(To receive assistance you must have a valid ID and proof of residence in the relevant county.)


Community Kitchen

The Capital Area Salvation Army offers a Community Kitchen which serves a nutritious meal in a setting of hospitality and safety. We collaborate with other individuals and groups to enhance our ministry. 

There is a meal served both at the Citadel Corps located at 525 N. Pennsylvania Ave or at the South Corps at 701 W. Jolly Road on Mondays and Fridays from noon to 12:45 pm.

Dinner is served at South Corps on Wednesdays from 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm.

Everyone is welcome to join us for these meals and no documentation is needed.



Food Pantry

In many ways, America is the land of plenty. But for 1 in 6 people in the United States, hunger is a very real struggle. Many people believe that the problems associated with hunger are confined to small pockets of society, certain areas of the country, or certain neighborhoods, but the reality is much different.

Right now, millions of Americans are at risk of hunger.  These are often hard-working adults, children and seniors who simply cannot always make ends meet and may be forced to go without food (from Feeding America).

Households in need of food can receive assistance from one of two local Salvation Army Food Pantries one time each month, which may not be sufficient for some households.  The amount of food each household receives is based on the number of individuals in the family/household.
