"Hungry" is no way to spend childhood

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

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.

How we help cure hunger

Food Pantry

Our Food Pantry is open daily at the hours listed below. Clients can use the food pantry one time within a 3-week period. 

Food Pantry Hours:

  • Monday-Friday         12:30 p.m. - 2:30 p.m. at 202 Callon Street, Wausau, Wisconsin location

Clients need identification for all household members and proof of residency of Marathon County. The amount of food received depends upon the number of people living in the household. 

Our food pantry is unique because clients are able to shop the pantry and pick out the items they would like from each food group. This gives individuals the freedom to choose what they need. 

The pantry is stocked by donations from food drives, businesses, and individuals.

Bread and Produce Distribution
Helps families with fresh produce, bread, or other items when available. These items could include meat, milk, dairy products, etc. 

These items are available through our distribution days: Monday through Friday, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., one person in the building at a time, due to COVID-19. Masks and gloves are required, provided on-site.

Feeding Program
Lunch is served Monday through Friday from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on a carry-out basis to anyone needing a nutritious meal.
