The Salvation Army Kroc Center needs to collect 4,000 items and $4,000 to supplement our on-site food pantry for the next three months. The Walter A. Meyer Food Pantry helps an average of about 75 families every week. One of the reasons our demand grows this time of the year is more families need to supplement meals for their children who would typically get them at school.

We need non-perishable food items. Here is a list of the most needed things:

  • Toilet paper (only the 4 pack, please)

  • Paper Towels (only the 2 pack, please)

  • Shampoo

  • Laundry Detergent

  • Dish Soap

  • Canned Beans

  • Boxed Cereal

  • Canned Fruit

For those interested in making a monetary donation, log on to and select the "Community" Challenge Group. People can also text JULYFOOD to 41444 and follow the instructions. You can always stop by and make a donation here at the center.

No amount is too small. We would need all donations delivered to us by Noon Friday, July 12th.
