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.
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.
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, please call 815.972.1135. Or find a Service Extension Unit (partner organization/agency) near you.
Bed & Bread Club
Many of The Salvation Army's services ensure families have nutritious food to eat and safe place to sleep. Once the basics are covered, we support families with after-school programming, creative arts education, worship opportunities, and more. Help keep these programs available to those most in need by joining the Bed & Bread Club.
