The Mobile Canteen, a feeding program on
wheels which feeds people who are hungry and often homeless in Cleveland
and East Cleveland. Staffed primarily by community volunteers, with
supervision by The Salvation Army, the canteen goes out Monday thru
Friday in the mornings, and Sunday thru Friday in the evenings.
Most of the persons who seek assistance from the canteen consist
primarily of families. These families are the working poor who cannot
afford to buy food on a regular basis for themselves or their children.
Others that are helped by the canteen are the homeless, elderly, and
mental health patients who are on the streets. Given the availability,
blankets, warm clothing and gloves are also provided to those in need.
