FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: 


The Salvation Army of Wisconsin and Upper Michigan Changes Food Pantry Visit Requirements Due to Government Shutdown 

WAUWATOSA - The partial government shutdown is affecting many of our neighbors directly with the loss of paychecks and others indirectly who rely on business from government employees.

"All of our Salvation Army food pantries in the State of Wisconsin and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan are available to serve those who are unemployed or rendered unemployed by the shutdown," said Major Steve Merritt, the Divisional Commander for The Salvation Army of Wisconsin and Upper Michigan. "All government employees need to do is show up and show their government issued ID card."

Each food pantry has its own hours and not every type of food is available at every pantry, so please call in advance.

"With the expected additional usage there will be some strain on the pantries, so we are also gratefully accepting contributions from those who can do so," Merritt said.
