Macomb Salvation Army Food Pantry at "very serious" shortage of food

Posted:
MACOMB, Ill. (WGEM) -

The shelves of the Macomb Salvation Army Food Pantry are running low.

In fact, the Salvation Army says it's the lowest the Macomb pantry has ever seen and says it's a "very serious" situation.

The Salvation Army says it is completely out of canned soup, canned fruit, tuna and canned meats, peanut butter and crackers.

"These items are staples that would normally go in all our food boxes for clients," said Jennifer Cordes, Caseworker and Volunteer Coordinator for the Salvation Army in Macomb, said.

The pantry is also running low on low-prepared foods, rice and pastas, Hamburger Helper, potatoes, rice, stuffing, Ramen noodles, cereal and macaroni & cheese.

In May, the Macomb Salvation Army assisted 99 families with food boxes in McDonough County.

You can drop food items off at the Macomb Salvation Army Food Pantry at 505 N. Randolph St. on Tuesday- Thursday from 9AM- noon, and 1PM- 4PM.
