The Salvation Army Is Stocking Its Shelves!

The Salvation Army in Connecticut and Rhode Island is stocking its food pantry shelves and needs your help! Food and hygiene items collected during this time of year, not only helps those in need during the holidays, but throughout the year.

According to Feeding America, more than 48.8 million people face the threat of hunger daily in the United States. To help mitigate that threat, The Salvation Army serves more than 56 million meals to anyone in need through its many soup kitchens, sit-down meal programs, food pantries, mobile meals and community gardens.

These nutritional meals assist 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. Food programs and services vary with local needs. For information on specific programs and locations, contact your local Salvation Army Corps Community Center. Needed items are listed below.
