Too Many Children Feel the Pain of Hunger

One out of every five children in your town is unsure where or
when they will get their next meal.

Get Food Assistance

The Salvation Army feeds an average of 150,000 meals every single day.

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.

Those in need receive more than 56 million meals each year through:

Food Assistance

The Salvation Army provides programs to address hunger throughout Connecticut and Rhode Island. Intake and assessment for food-related programs will also provide referrals to other social services within The Salvation Army and throughout Connecticut and Rhode Island. The Salvation Army also provides hot meals year-round through various locations for those in need.

Additionally, The Salvation Army also offers numerous food pantries to provide groceries for families and individuals in need. Food is free, but some locations require appointments, while others are on a walk-in first come first serve basis, such as those operating units that offer bread programs.

Hot Meal Programs and Food Pantries

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.
