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.
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.
The Salvation Army's food pantry provides shelf-stable pantry items, bread, cereal, meat, and other household necessities. The pantry is open Thursday, 9 a.m. - Noon.
The Salvation Army provides Thanksgiving and Christmas meals for families unable to create a special meal themselves. We host 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 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.
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 >
