"Hungry" is no way to spend childhood

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

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 last full week of every month except November and December we will provide a hot plated meal for anyone in the community that may be in need. This lunch program allows us to meet the needs of those looking for a hot lunch and allows us to offer a place for the community to come and feel welcomed and loved. 

This is a program that also allows for many to give back to the community, we are also looking for volunteers to help us serve and give back. To sign up you or your business, you can contact The Salvation Army at 573-335-7000, or go to myvolunteerpage.com and in the search field type "Cape"

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.

Food Pantry

The Salvation Army's food pantry provides shelf-stable pantry items, bread, cereal, meat, and other household necessities. The pantry is open Tuesday from 9 a.m. - Noon and Thursday from 1 p.m.-3 p.m.

Thanksgiving and Christmas Meals

The Salvation Army provides Thanksgiving and Christmas meals for families unable to create a special meal themselves. We host a Thanksgiving meal in our building on Thanksgiving day. We 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.

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 United Way Emergency assistance hotline at 211.

Bed & Bread Club

Many of The Salvation Army's services ensure families have nutritious food to eat and a safe place to sleep. Once the basics are covered, we support families with after-school programming, creative arts education, worship opportunities, and more. Learn More >
