"For I was hungry and you gave me food."

Matthew 25:35
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.

The Salvation Army in Boone County feeds an average of 33,000 meals each year.

The Salvation Army helps diminish hunger daily by providing nutritious meals to anyone in need. This includes homeless people of all ages, as well as individuals and families who may be down on their luck and in need of some extra assistance. In addition to addressing the immediate symptoms of food insecurity, our programs are designed to help identify and treat its root cause. Over time, this holistic approach to the physical, mental, and spiritual needs of each person helps move many from "hungry" to "fully healed."

Hunger is curable. You can help.

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.
