Every day The Salvation Army helps cure hunger by providing nutritious meals to neighbors in need.
The Salvation Army’s approach to feeding the hungry is formed based on the local needs of each community we serve.
Food pantries assist families and individuals with supplemental groceries that allow families to stretch their funds for the month while helping them maintain their independence and dignity. These food pantries are critical in “food deserts,” where entire communities experience food insecurity due to lack of grocery store access. Eligibility for the food pantry is based on need. The amount of food varies by family size.
From sit down meals in our soup kitchen, to residential meals in our shelters and senior day centers, The Salvation Army is filling empty stomachs and empty hearts. A meal is more than just food, it's community for a senior that would otherwise be shut-in or a sense of normalcy for a family that lost their home.
Our mobile meal programs bring hot, nutritious meals to high need areas where individuals experiencing homelessness congregate.
Each Salvation Army community garden provides a no-cost, renewable source of produce for those in need. While there are different models of gardens across our footprint, communities benefit from the output in different ways.
Food $en$e is a monthly food buying co-op for anyone who wants to stretch their grocery dollars. Food $en$e provides a monthly box of 12-15 staple grocery items at a discounted price.
There are no qualifications, no subscriptions, and no requirements to participate in Food $en$e.

Hunger — in the form of each hungry person we meet — literally stops at The Salvation Army’s doors . . . in our own community and around the world, every day of every week of every month of every year. Hunger stops here. Last year, The Salvation Army Empire State Division provided over 4 million meals to people in need. These meals assisted low-income individuals and families struggling to make ends meet throughout Upstate New York.
