Every day, The Salvation Army helps cure hunger by providing nutritious meals to neighbors in need.
To keep our clients, staff, and volunteers safe, and in accordance with city and state guidelines, most programs at The Salvation Army Elgin Corps Community Center are closed until further notice. Modified programs and services may still be available. Fresh Produce Pantry items are pre-boxed and not client choice. We are open on Saturdays from 9:30 to 11:30am, but only small groups are allowed in the building at a time. We provide home goods items on Tuesdays from 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM and Thursdays from 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM. We have adjusted to pre-bagged instead of the client-choice until further notice. For the most up-to-date information, please contact us at 847-741-2304.

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 156,000 nutritious meals for seniors, children and families in the U.S. every day.
