The Salvation Army’s approach to feeding the hungry is based on the local needs of each community we serve.
Those in need across the Northeast can get nutritious, hot meals or groceries from their nearest Salvation Army Service and Worship Center.
We feed thousands daily, including the most vulnerable of our communities — underserved children in our after-school programs, the elderly at our Adult Day Centers, forgotten friends at our homeless shelters, people looking to better their lives at our addiction recovery facilities, survivors rebuilding their lives after a disaster, and domestic violence and anti-human trafficking victims.
Salvation Army food pantries provide groceries for families and individuals in need. Food is free, but some locations require appointments. Others are on a first-come, first-served walk-in basis. Call your local Salvation Army office or the 211 helpline to determine which food shelf serves your area.
Anyone in need of a nutritious meal can find one at The Salvation Army. Our holistic approach to meet the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of each person helps move many from crisis to empowerment.
We help anyone interested in the Federal Food Support Program get a jump start with a pre-screening. Once we determine eligibility, we offer help filing the application.
No one should ever go a day without a meal or feel ashamed about asking for help. That’s why many of our locations provide hot meals and free groceries year-round to anyone who needs them. For home-bound seniors, some areas even offer grocery delivery services. Contact the location near you to learn when meals are offered or which food shelf serves your area. You may need an appointment for groceries, depending on the location.
Many of the people we serve are also in need of community. Our community gardens provide a no-cost, renewable source of produce, as well as vital work structure and community-building for those who tend it.
