Help Feed the Homeless through Our Mobile Breakfast Service

Each Tuesday and Friday morning, The Salvation Army's mobile canteen services breakfast to around 1,000 homeless and near-homeless individuals in Des Moines. The menu features a hot egg casserole that provides a delicious, high-protein meal.  

You can help feed our neighbors in greatest need by preparing egg casseroles (recipe below) to be served through this food program. Each casserole feeds 10 people, with 150 casseroles needed each week. 

To learn more or sign up to volunteer, call 515-282-3599.
