“The Feed The Kids program is a critical need in our community,” said Major Steve Woodard, Area Commander for The Salvation Army of Milwaukee County. “There are hundreds of children who rely on free or reduced lunch during the school year, and when school ends, many go hungry without the help.”

The Feed The Kids summer meals program will run until Friday, August 26. So far, The Salvation Army has served more than 41,740 meals to children and adults this summer.


The Salvation Army, an evangelical part of the universal Christian church, has been supporting those in need in His name without discrimination since 1865. Nearly 33 million Americans receive assistance from The Salvation Army each year through the broadest array of social services that range from providing food for the hungry, relief for disaster victims, assistance for the disabled, outreach to the elderly and ill, clothing and shelter to the homeless and opportunities for underprivileged children. The Salvation Army tracks the level of need across the country with the Human Needs Index ( Locally, 87 cents of every dollar raised is used to support more than 80 programs and services.
