Each night in the U.S., 17.4 million families go to bed hungry. An additional 6.9 million families experience very low food security. That means they don't always know where their next meal is coming from.
Families should not have to choose between healthy food and paying rent. The Salvation Army provides more than 1 million nutritious meals for seniors, children and families in Chicago every year.
The Salvation Army Chicago Temple Corps Community Center hosts an emergency food pantry on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 10:30 a.m. - 11:30 a.m. and Tuesdays from 10:00 a.m. - noon. Food boxes may include shelf-stable pantry items, breads, cereals, meat and other household necessities.

Meals at Shelters, Facilities & Other Programs
The Salvation Army provides nutritious meals each day for families staying at our shelters, in residential programs, and children enrolled in the Head Start/Early Head Start and camp programs. Most after-school programs also provide a healthy snack.
The Salvation Army provides Thanksgiving and Christmas meals for families unable to create a special meal themselves. We host homemade dinners at our facility and provide a Christmas dinner box to struggling families. Each box feeds a family of six, and includes meat, potatoes, stuffing, vegetables, biscuits, cake mix and more.
