Salvation Army of Broward County Requests Assistance to Meet Holiday Demand

As the holiday season approaches with the pandemic still impacting communities, the Salvation Army of Broward County requests the community’s help to ensure everyone’s food needs can be met. To help replenish its Food Pantry for upcoming community distributions, the organization is collecting non-perishable food items, including all canned goods (beans/vegetables, fruit, meat and milk), rice, boxed cereals, pasta and sauces, peanut butter and jelly, oatmeal, granola bars, snacks and other pre-prepared shelf-stable meals. 

Food Pantry distributions occur from 9 a.m. to noon every Thursday, with the next distribution set for Nov. 4. Since the pandemic began in early 2020, the organization has reported a 244% increase in the need for pantry food distribution services. Along with the Food Pantry, the organization also offers meals-to-go services for those experiencing homelessness and other impoverished individuals.

Individuals and organizations interested in donating food can drop off between 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at The Salvation Army of Broward Headquarters at 1445 W. Broward Blvd. in Fort Lauderdale. To schedule a delivery outside of those hours or donate funds, please get in touch with Joshua Myers, director of development, at (954) 712-2431 or [email protected].
