Doing The Most to Fight Hunger

Every day, The Salvation Army helps cure hunger by providing nutritious meals to neighbors in need.

To keep our clients, staff, and volunteers safe, and in accordance with city and state guidelines, most programs at The Salvation Army Rockford Temple Corps Community Center are closed until further notice. Modified programs and services may still be available. Food pantry is open but items are being pre-packaged. Social services available by appointment at the 416 S. Madison Street location. For the most up-to-date information, please contact us at 815-226-4400.

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.

The Salvation Army fights hunger in our community through:

Meals at Shelters, Facilities and Other Programs
The Salvation Army provides nutritious meals and snacks for families and individuals in need. We serve dinner for children, families, and seniors during Supper Club at 5 p.m. on Thursday evenings. Most after-school and camp programs also provide a healthy snack.

Food Pantry
The Salvation Army's food pantry at our Social Service Center serves the Rockford/Winnebago County area. Items provided include shelf-stable pantry foods, breads, cereals, meat, and other household necessities. For more information, visit our Social Services page or call 815-972-1135.

Homelessness Prevention & Emergency Assistance Programs
The Salvation Army provides emergency assistance to help with utility bills, clothing, medication bills, and other needs in order to keep families in their homes. For more information or support: contact our Social Service Center at 815-972-1135, find a location near you, or learn more online.
