Feeding Programs

The Peoria Salvation Army offers a daily feeding program Monday - Friday. Our lunch program is called Lunch with Love and offers a hot meal to the public out of the Sylvia Fites Family Services building located at 414 NE Jefferson, Peoria. We typically serve 60-100 people each day.

We are in need of volunteers who are willing to work in a commercial grade kitchen to help prepare and/or serve our meals. We offer various roles including helping our Chef prepare the meal as well as serving the prepared meal to our public population.
