Summer Food Service Program

You can come to the Kroc for a free, healthy meal each weekday from June 14 to August 13. Carryout meals will be served from 12 to 12:20 p.m. for children under the age of 18. Snacks will be distributed as well during this period, with adult meals also available without any registration required. Each week brings different themes and prizes for kids to win throughout the summer in conjunction with the meals. Week one kicks off with a nature activity and kit!

Learn More about The Salvation Army

Many Americans are familiar with The Salvation Army's thrift stores which fund our well-known drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs. And our iconic red kettles have become a symbol of the Christmas season and the spirit of giving.

But in hundreds of communities across the Eastern United States, The Salvation Army also operates programs and services which are designed to meet human need in Christ's name, alleviate human suffering, and promote wholeness by addressing the spiritual, social, emotional, psychological and physical well-being of those served.
