The Salvation Army Meets the Greatest Need in Our Community by Providing Nutritious Meals & Snacks To Those Who Are Hungry

The Salvation Army stands ready to help individuals and families in every zip code in America. In the Chicagoland area, we’re here to help struggling families put healthy meals on the table, give kids healthy food when school is out, and make sure being homeless doesn't mean you're also hungry. Your support today provides a meal, hope and help to a family in your neighborhood.

Food Pantries
The Salvation Army has food pantries in more than 25 locations throughout the Chicagoland area. Food boxes may include shelf-stable pantry items, breads, cereals, meat and other household necessities.

Bed & Bread Club
Many of The Salvation Army's services ensure families have nutritious food to eat and safe place to sleep. Once the basics are covered, we support families with after-school programming, creative arts education, worship opportunities, and more. Help keep these programs available to those most in need by joining the Bed & Bread Club.

Meals at Shelters, Facilities & Other Programs
The Salvation Army provides nutritious meals each day for families staying at our shelters, in residential programs, and children enrolled in the Head Start/Early Head Start and camp programs. Most after-school programs also provide a healthy snack.

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.
