The Salvation Army of Evansville, Indiana

The Salvation Army of Evansville Indiana is working hard to solve the food insecurities that many families face through our soup kitchen and food pantry. 

The Salvation Army was there when I needed them.

I was really down and out. I had lost my job and I did not know what I was going to do. Covid virus forced the restaurant where I worked as a janitor to close. At first I was just laid-off but after a month the restaurant permanently closed. The Salvation Army helped me with my rent, utilities, and food. I was so glad The Salvation Army was there.

How we help fight hunger

Our food programs are open every week and throughout the year for those in need. Volunteers are involved at every step and help us put our resources to help clients rather than hiring workers. Here are some of those programs.

Daily Lunch Program
Meals are served Monday-Friday from 11:00 AM - 1:00 PM to whoever is in need. There are no income requirements, forms to fill out or anything. All we ask is for a name and general information if you feel comfortable. The meal is served hot alongside a drink and a dessert to help regulate blood sugar for our elder patrons. We receive food from donations and government programs, however we do have to purchase food items when those don't cover everything. We welcome anyone in need in our area to come and take advantage of our meal program as much as they need to make ends meet!

Food Pantry Program
Our Food Pantry is opening Monday, Wednesday, Thursday from 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM. We are a TEFA participating food pantry and an equal opportunity provider. We offer groceries to whoever is in need and meets federal guidelines for the TEFAP program... Groceries include: dry goods, canned, goods, frozen meat, refrigerator product and staples, and much more. While there is a restriction to who we can serve, most if not all people in need would qualify. Patrons are allowed to come once a month and receive food items from us and can also come on behalf of others. Those who are not able to get out or find transportation can ask someone to come on their behalf and fill out the proper paperwork to be an approved "proxy".  Please contact our offices with any questions
