"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 Indiana, 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 Pantry

By offering access to free fresh produce and canned goods, we provide valuable meal supplementation while helping those in need maintain their independence and dignity. 

Our Michigan City Food Pantry serves approximately 1,000 people each month and it is open on Tuesdays and Thursdays, 9 AM to 11 AM and 1 PM to 3 PM. 

Weekend Backpack Program

This program helps children in the Michigan City area who are homeless, in eminent risk of becoming homeless or are otherwise in need of food. These children receive six meals per week throughout the school year -- making sure that they have breakfast, lunch and dinner over the weekend when school is not in session (making school provided meals unavailable).

We currently serve 75 children in this program who have been identified through MCAS personnel.
