FOOD FOR THOUGHT Image

FOOD FOR THOUGHT



Almost half of our County is eligible for our services. It's humbling to be so appreciated for sharing kindness.

 EATING AWAY AT HUNGER.   

  The Salvation Army distributes over half a million pounds of food annually & teams 

 with community partners on programs that provide food for thought.

Feeding Community Impacted By COVID-19

“I lost my job because of the virus and I’ve already gone through my savings and have been pretty much wiped out. But being able to come to The Salvation Army and get groceries is a huge relief, particularly if you have no income. Everyone is so friendly and so helpful. I didn’t think anything like this even existed.”

How we Nourish Our Community

The Salvation Army combats hunger daily by providing nutritious meals to anyone in need. This includes people of all ages, those experiencing homelessness, as well as individuals and families who may be struggling to make ends meet and in need of extra assistance. In addition to addressing the immediate symptoms of food insecurity, programs are designed to help identify and treat its root cause. Over time, this holistic approach to the physical, mental and spiritual needs of each person helps move many from “hungry” to “fully healed.”

Food Pantry

Our food pantry is stocked by donations from businesses and individuals. Along with food,  and equally important, are the personal care items and cleaning supplies we stock.  Food Stamps/Quest cards do not cover these necessities and those who can't afford them depend on our supplies, or otherwise may go without.  

Food pantry hours: Monday - Friday 10:00 a.m. - 1: 30 p.m. Clients are able to return to the pantry once every 30 days, and the amount of food they receive depends on the household size and the resources we have available.  A pantry card is kept on file for each household using the pantry. 

Thanksgiving & Christmas Dinners

Each year, we collect special holiday food items and coordinates distribution to help individuals celebrate holidays with a traditional meal. Check back or visit our Facebook page for updates.

Summer Brown Bag Lunch Giveaway

Fond du Lac's oldest free summer brown bag lunch program feeds children every Tuesday and Thursday,  June - August, and has since 1993. 

Each nutritional sack lunch includes a peanut butter or meat sandwich, chips/snack, vegetable/fruit, dessert item & beverage. 

 

TO HELP:

A gift of $200 helps  one family one time with personal care items (feminine care, soap, shampoo, toothpaste, deodorant, toilet paper, facial tissue, etc), cleaning/laundry supplies and the food items used most (canned soup, boxed mac and cheese, canned vegetables, peanut butter, boxed cereal, fruit juice). Fund the entire goal yourself, or give in any amount and your gift will be paired with others to support a family. Make a financial donation towards supplies click here.
