Organizers are asking the community to donate non-perishable food items.

Urgent items needed include:

  • Tuna/Chicken Helper/Hamburger Helper
  • Hearty canned soup: Chili, ravioli, beef ste, chicken noodle, etc.
  • Peanut butter and jelly
  • Macaroni and Cheese
  • Instant Potatoes and/or rice side dishes
  • Dry milk, evaporated milk
  • Grist or oatmeal
  • Pancake mix and syrup

A full list of accepted items can be found here.

The Chattanooga Salvation Army will only accept non-perishable food items that have not expired.

Monetary donations can be made here or by calling 1-800-SAL-ARMY.
