Hungry is no way to spend a childhood

Hungry is no way to spend a childhood.

Here in Kent County,
one out of five children face food insecurity.

The Salvation Army works to ensure that every member of our community has the food they need to thrive. If you face hunger, we want you to know that you are not alone.

Kent County Emergency Food Pantry

Our pantry has regularly scheduled hours Monday through Friday and serves the entire Kent County area.


Monday - Friday:
9:00 AM to 11:30 AM
and 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM

We are closed on holidays and weekends.


Identification is required for all household members. Adults are required to have a photo ID.

Social security cards, school IDs, medical cards, shot records, and birth certificates are valid for children.


If you have questions about the food pantry, call us at 616-459-9468 or email tsa_socialservices@usc.salvationarmy.org.

Food Provided

The Food Pantry is open designated hours each week and available to households across the county who are in need of emergency food to sustain themselves. The Pantry commits to securing as many fresh and healthy food items as possible in order to provide well-balanced orders of groceries that last 3 to 5 days.

Fulton Heights Senior Program

Our Fulton Heights Corps Community Center hosts seniors (ages 60 and up) from 8:30 AM to 2:00 PM.
For just a $2 donation, seniors enjoy a wide variety of activities -- plus a balanced, healthy lunch.
Hundreds of seniors from all around the county gather to take part in these times of fellowship and food.

Get in touch with the Fulton Heights Corps for more details:
616-454-1459 or wmiFultonHeights@usc.salvationarmy.org.
