This story has been updated with a new location for Monday and Friday food distributions.

COLORADO SPRINGS — Catholic Charities of Central Colorado, The Salvation Army in Colorado Springs, and Fuel Church have all joined forces to create a mobile feeding program for members in our community without access to hot meals. 

Catholic Charities has volunteered to provide all the food, Fuel Church will be crafting the meals, and meals will be distributed from The Salvation Army Emergency Disaster Services Truck.  They realize vulnerable members of our community are going hungry, and our goal is to provide hot meals for them during the month of April.

“I applaud the leadership of Fuel Church and the Salvation Army who just keep saying “yes” when they could have said “no,” said CEO of Catholic Charities of Central Colorado. “People living on the margins are more vulnerable than ever during this crisis, and food scarcity is a frightening reality.  This effort addresses that issue, head-on and demonstrates how incredible our faith community is during these times of need.”

Mobile Feeding Program

The Salvation Army “Food Truck” will be at:

  • Sacred Heart Church- 2030 W. Colorado Ave.
    • Monday and Friday: 1 pm
  • West Side Cares– 2808 W. Colorado Ave.
    • Wednesday 1 pm

If you, or you know of anyone who would benefit from a hot meal, please let them know we will all be there!
