You can help stock our food pantries!

It’s no secret that nutrition is a key component to a healthy and happy life. This is true for everyone and is especially crucial for children and their development. Food insecurity has become a widespread issue across our nation. Too many families are unsure about where and when their next meal will come from.

Feeding America reports that in 2011, 50.1 million Americans lived in food insecure households, comprised of 33.5 million adults and 16.7 million children.

The Salvation Army recognizes the severity of this issue and has long been dedicated to helping families meet this basic need. This is why our food pantries, which provide groceries for individuals and families in need, are so crucial in helping us combat food insecurity.

But we need your help to keep these pantries stocked!

Macomb, Michigan is a prime example. In May of this year, the Macomb Salvation Army assisted 99 families with food boxes in McDonough County and count on donations to keep their good work going.

Due to their food pantry stock running uncomfortably low, The Salvation Army of Macomb petitioned the community for food donations to help restore their inventory. Specifically, canned essentials such as soup, fruit, meats, peanut butter and crackers are needed. If you live in Macomb, click here to learn more.
