The Salvation Army of Broward County is seeking non-perishable food items to help replenish its Food Pantry. Items needed include all canned goods (beans/vegetables, fruit, meat and milk), rice, boxed cereals, pastas and sauces, peanut butter and jelly, oatmeal, granola bars, snacks and other pre-prepared shelf-stable meals.
Presently, The Salvation Army of Broward County is feeding thousands of residents-in-need through its Food Pantry during the COVID-19 pandemic. Each Thursday, trusted Army experts provide non-perishable items and other pantry goods to more than 100 underserved families and the number is growing. The organization also provides meals-to-go services for the homeless, its residents and other impoverished individuals.
