"Hungry" is no way to spend childhood.

Every day The Salvation Army helps cure hunger
by providing nutritious meals to neighbors in need.

Donate Now

Every day we're providing meals to children in Head Start, families in shelters, people living on the streets, and those unsure of where their next meal will come from.

59% of people seeking food assistance choose between paying for food and paying rent or mortgage.

The Salvation Army provides more than 1 million nutritious meals for seniors, children and families in Chicago every year.

The Salvation Army fights hunger in our community through: 

Mobile Feeding & Homeless Outreach
The Salvation Army makes more than 25 stops every day to provide hot meals, case management, and mental health and substance abuse services to the homeless. We are ready to assist those interested in leaving the streets. Download the Mobile Unit's schedule.

Homelessness Prevention & Emergency Assistance Programs
The Salvation Army provides emergency assistance to help with mortgage/rent, utility bills, clothing, medication bills, and other needs in order to keep families in their homes. For more information or support: contact our Corps Community Center, call the emergency assistance hotline 773.205.3520 or learn more online
Thanksgiving and Christmas Meals
The Salvation Army provides Thanksgiving and Christmas meals for families unable to create a special meal themselves. We host homemade dinners at our facility and provide a Christmas dinner box to families enrolled in the Angel Tree program. Each box feeds a family of 6, and includes meat, potatoes, stuffing, vegetables, biscuits, cake mix and more. You can support this year's Christmas Food Box Project.  

Meals for Clients
The Salvation Army provides nutritious meals each day for clients in the Harbor Light Center and Pathway Forward programs.
