We provide food assistance through:

Food Pantry

By offering access to free fresh produce and canned goods, we provide valuable meal supplementation while helping those in need maintain their independence and dignity. Our food pantries provide non-perishable food and basic hygiene items for those in need. Individuals have the opportunity to receive a food basket once a month. Intake for food assistance often takes place on the day of produce distribution.

Our Ann Arbor campus offers food pantry on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9:30am - 11:30am and 1pm - 3pm

In Ypsilanti, we partner with Hope Clinic to serve meals at their location at 518 Harriet St, Ypsilanti, MI 48197O.

Contact 734-668-8353 for more information.

Community Feeding Program

In addition to our food pantries, we also serve fresh food to members of our communities. We receive perishable food donations from restaurants such as Panera Bread, Red Lobster, Whole Foods, Outback, Starbucks and Bob Evans on a weekly basis and distribute them twice weekly. In the Ypsilanti area, individuals in need of this assistance are encouraged to come every Thursday between 1:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. to 9 Part St., Ypsilanti. At this location hot meals are served every Monday and Thursday night between 5 p.m. – 6 p.m. The meals are always free of charge and available to any member of our community.

Feeding His Sheep

The Salvation Army, in partnership with Grow U, sponsors an initiative called Feeding His Sheep. The goal of the weekend backpack food program is to provide balanced, nutritional meals to children and families in our area. Many children benefit from school meal programs during the week days. In these difficult economic times, we recognize that some families may be challenged to meet this need over the weekend. The program is simple. At the end of every Friday school day, the child will receive a red, wheeled backpack filled with nutritious supplemental food for Saturday and Sunday. One red backpack is capable of feeding a family of four. Our aim is to help children receive good nutrition, develop healthy eating habits, thus promote having better attendance, improved academic and scholastic achievements.
