Every day The Salvation Army helps cure hunger by providing nutritious meals to neighbors in need.
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.
Emergency Food Pantry
The Salvation Army Emergency Food Pantry is here to serve any Muskegon County household experiencing a food emergency. The hours are as follows: Monday & Wednesday 1:00-4:00pm; Tuesday & Thursday 10:00am-3:00pm; Friday 10:00am-4:00pm. No appointment is needed, but a sign in sheet is provided for client convenience. Families experiencing a food emergency can access the pantry as emergencies arise between 1 and 12 times within a year based on income and circumstance. Budgeting classes are also offered to assist the client in stretching future resources and help maintain self-sustainability going forward.
