The Salvation Army also utilizes the canteen to serve meals in the neighborhoods of Trenton on a bi-weekly rotating basis serving over 300 individuals each time.
One out of six children in the United States is hungry and or undernourished. In a city such as Trenton this ratio is even higher. This puts such children at a disadvantage in learning and development. Over time, this program has developed into a form of hospitality brought by The Salvation Army and volunteers to places where little hospitality is available. The program serves as a connection to services that The Salvation Army offers and has introduced Salvation Army personnel to the community in an up close and personal way.
