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.

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

Each box feeds a family of 6 and includes meat, potatoes, stuffing, vegetables, biscuits, cake mix, and more.
