Bed & Bread Club

Dedicated to feeding the hungry in Detroit.


What We Do

     Homelessness and hunger are problems many Detroit residents must deal with day in and day out. That's why the Eastern Michigan Division of the Salvation Army is proud to participate in the Bed & Bread Club. We're dedicated to feeding the hungry residents of Detroit who are unable to make it to a soup kitchen, as well as to providing overnight shelter for those residents who cannot sleep in beds of their own.

Every day people go hungry.

Every day our trucks are there to feed them.

Feeding the Hungry in Detroit

     Each day, no matter the weather, our Bed & Bread Club truck drivers make their way through all of Detroit, traveling multiple routes to make over 60 stops to feed the hungry. That even includes holidays and days when the weather may prove dangerous, because we understand that hunger doesn't take any days off. On a yearly basis, we're proud to provide more than 1.3 million meals and more than 130,000 nights of shelter throughout the city of Detroit, Michigan.

     As is the case in many cities across America, Detroit has its share of economically depressed areas, making access to quality food and shelter more difficult. The Bed & Bread Club is just one of many ways in which the Eastern Michigan Division of The Salvation Army strives to provide support for these Detroit communities.

How You Can Help

If you're interested in assisting the Eastern Michigan Division of the Salvation Army as we offer food and shelter to Detroit residents, here's how you can help:

Donate: Even a small donation can make a difference, and just $120 can feed five people for nearly a full month.

Volunteer: Whether you'd like to prepare meals in a kitchen or join our Bed & Bread Club trucks as they feed the hungry across the city, there are plenty of ways you can help in person.

"I thank god for the Salvation Army, because I know that I can feed my kids. And tomorrow will be a better day."
