Fighting Food Insecurity

“Day in and day out, The Salvation Army works to fight food insecurity, hunger and poverty via thousands of food banks, pantries and shelters. Last year alone, we served almost 60 million meals to individuals and families in need. If the food served at Salvation Army locations isn’t purchased from the monetary donations of our supporters, it’s often donated directly from local businesses and grocery stores.”
