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

Each night in the U.S., 17.4 million families go to bed hungry. An additional 6.9 million families experience very low food security. That means they don't always know where their next meal is coming from.

"I'm Thankful for the fresh food pantry. My Family gets a meal every night with fresh produce."

Families should not have to choose between healthy food and paying rent. The Salvation Army provides more than 156,000 nutritious meals for seniors, children, and families in the U.S. every day.

The Salvation Army fights hunger in our community through:

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

Thanksgiving and Christmas Meals

The Salvation Army in JOPLIN provides Thanksgiving and Christmas meals for families unable to create a special meal themselves. We serve 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.

The CARTHAGE location provides Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner boxes for eligible families. Each box will provide all the traditional fixings to create a special family holiday meal.
