Food Pantry Demand Continues To Grow

Posted: Updated:

The Salvation Army nationwide is seeing a heavy demand for food relief and Greenville is no exception. Representatives with the local food pantries say they need a new influx of support from the community to meet the needs of a growing number of Americans in poverty. Officials with the Salvation Army say the majority of their clients are new, meaning they've never had to ask for help before.

Last year in Greenville the Salvation Army served 121,350 meals and provided almost 10,000 food bags to families.

Here's how you can help:

Host a Food Drive.  Share the need and a Food Drive flyer with your colleagues or neighborhood along with dates for your Food Drive.  The Salvation Army will arrange to pick-up your donations and food barrels can be provided if requested.  Call 235-4803, ext. 217 for details.  

For more information on other ways to help, call The Salvation Army at 1-800-SAL-ARMY, 864-235-4803, mail your gifts to P. O. Box 1237, Greenville, SC  29602, or make a donation online at www.salvationarmygreenville.org.
