What’s a Canteen?

Check out this video presenting the very foundation of The Salvation Army Disaster services – the Canteen. The Salvation Army deploys these “kitchens on wheels” during times of disaster. A single canteen can provide food for 500 to 5,000 individuals, depending on the unit.

Throughout the last few days, The Salvation Army has served more than 60,000 meals, beverages, and snacks to those impacted by Hurricane Irene.

In total, The Salvation Army has 370 mobile feeding units and five mobile kitchens up and down the East coast, serving those in need.
