The Salvation Army Arlington Family Life Shelter

The last three months, The Salvation Army DFW has been blogging about hunger. In the blog posts, we've read the many different ways The Salvation Army DFW is helping people who need food.

Here's a quick recap. Click on the link to read the entire story.
And now, we have one final posts related to hunger. Don't worry! The Salvation Army will continue to serve and feed the hundreds, but we'll be transitioning into a new focus area come April 1st. Remember, you can always still give and support The Salvation Army DFW's hunger campaign by donating on our website--


 I present to you......

The Family Life Shelter at The Salvation Army in Arlington

The staff at the Family Life Shelter is exceptional. I went by to visit and see how they are fighting hunger.

Meet Michael.  He's the cook at the shelte and is a very funny guy. Michael really enjoys his job because he gets to help people every day.
The shelter serves three meals a day: breakfast, lunch, and dinner. On average they serve about 75 meals a day.

Families staying the shelter, along with children in the after school program, have the opportunity to enjoy a
healthy and delicious meal.
The salad bar offers lots of fresh fruits and vegetables!

And this little girl is ready to enjoy her burger and fries!

Read a short testimonial from Melissa. Melissa and her children have been staying at the Family Life Shelter for a few weeks. She says, she is grateful  the shelter provides meals for her family.

"Being able to have dinner as a family is the most important thing.
The shelter allows us to sit down and enjoy a meal together."
