As food costs skyrocket across the nation, it comes as no surprise that Union Gospel Mission of Salem is experiencing side effects.
From meat to milk and every nourishing food staple in between, UGM is seeing serious shortages in our kitchens.
Simonka Place, we are down to our last box of chicken – our freezers are empty of high-quality protein. We have been longtime recipients of donated dairy products like butter and milk, but our suppliers, too, are hamstrung by food costs and are unable to accommodate many of our needs.
Even common pantry items like canned vegetables, pasta, and rice are sparse on our shelves.
Please help us fill these urgent needs. On average, our kitchens feed more than 13,000 men, women, and children, monthly. It’s not only important to provide enough calories for each person, but also a meal that is quality, healthy, and sustaining.
You can help! Please consider donating one or multiple of the following items:
