Mobile Feeding Unit

Every night* The Salvation Army's Mobile Feeding Unit makes 25 stops throughout Chicago to provide a hot meal for men, women and families who find themselves spending their nights sleeping on the streets. We serve more than 800 meals each day - nearly a quarter of a million meals in a year. But those we reach get more than a hearty bowl of soup, bread, beverage and snack; they make a friend. They haven’t been forgotten; they are cared about and loved.

Mobile Outreach Unit

The Salvation Army's Mobile Outreach program provides much more than a warm, hearty meal. This team, including two caseworkers, provides a meal and on-site support for those in need – immediate transportation to shelter, enrollment in Salvation Army programs and services, and/or referral to substance abuse detox, medical care, or other needed services. Please be advised: traffic/weather conditions and emergencies may affect the schedule. Download a PDF version of the schedule here.
