The Salvation Army Quincy Area Command will host a one-day food distribution event in Pike County, IL, on May 13 in celebration of National Salvation Army Week. The distribution will occur at three separate locations in Pike County.

The Salvation Army received the Emergency Food and Shelter Program Grant which is to be used in Pike County, Illinois to provide food for individuals and families in need. The food boxes will be given away at each location on a first come, first served basis. There is no application process.

“We are happy to pass along the blessing of this grant to the Pike County Community,” stated Salvation Army Social Services Director Heidi Welty. “We know the last year has been difficult for many families. If just one food box can help a family in need, then we are making a difference.”

The Salvation Army is thankful for the help of Robb Holcomb with Bob’s Red Fox in Pleasant Hill for ordering the food for the boxes. At this time, the boxes are expected to include: milk, ground beef, a loaf of bread, butter, eggs, flour, sugar, spaghetti noodles, spaghetti sauce, tuna, apples, bananas, cereal, oatmeal, canned corn, and canned green beans. The quantity of food boxes is limited at each location.
