Feed the Hungry

The Salvation Army helps cure hunger daily by providing nutritious meals to anyone in need. This includes homeless people of all ages, as well as individuals and families who may be down on their luck and in need of some extra assistance. In addition to addressing the immediate symptoms of food insecurity, our programs are designed to help identify and treat its root cause. Over time, this holistic approach to the physical, mental and spiritual needs of each person helps moves many from ‘hungry’ to ‘fully healed.’

Hunger is curable. You can help.

Each year in Texas, we provide over 3.5 million meals through:

Food Pantries

By offering access to free fresh produce and canned goods, we provide valuable meal supplementation while helping those in need maintain their independence and dignity. These programs are especially crucial in “food deserts,” where entire communities lack access to a grocery store.

Meal Programs

From sit-down programs that provide nutritious, hot meals and valuable human interaction, to mobile meals that deliver much-needed sustenance to those who cannot reach a food distribution center, to feeding programs across our hundreds of shelters and residential facilities, we help ensure that the most vulnerable members of society do not go hungry.

Community Gardens

Each community garden provides a no-cost, renewable source of produce, as well as vital work structure for those involved in the cultivation and care of the food.
