"Hungry" is no way to live

Every day The Salvation Army helps fight hunger by providing nutritious meals to neighbors in need.

The Salvation Army Client Choice Food Pantry provides families the opportunity to choose their own grocery items rather than receive a prepackaged box. Approved recipients may visit the Food Pantry every 60 days to receive fresh, canned, and frozen food. In addition, access to perishable foods every 10 days is provided when available. Food assistance services depend on the status of current donations.

The Food Pantry is funded, in part, by the City of Boise and is a critical partner in the Idaho Food Bank distribution network.


Pantry Location:

9492 W. Emerald Street, Boise, ID 83704

Pantry Drive Thru located at the Northwest corner of the building.


Monday: CLOSED
Tuesday - Thursday: 12:00 - 4:00 PM
Friday: 10:00 AM - 2:00 PM

Clients are eligible every 30 days and need to provide proof of Ada County residency.


For more information contact Family Services at (208) 433-4423.

The Salvation Army feeds an average of 156,000 every single day in the U.S.

These meals are served to anyone in need - this includes homeless people of all ages, as well as individuals and families who may be down on their luck and in need of a helping hand. In addition to addressing the immediate symptoms of food insecurity, our programs are designed to help identify and treat its root cause. This approach focuses on meeting the physical, mental and spiritual needs of each person and helps move many from hungry to fully healed.

Each year The Salvation Army provides 56 million meals to those who are facing the threat of food insecurity.

By offering access to free, fresh produce and canned goods, we provide valuable meal supplementation while helping those in need maintain their independence and dignity.

Meal Programs
From sit-down meals that provide nutritious food and valuable human interaction, to mobile meals that deliver much-needed sustenance to those who cannot reach a food distribution center, we ensure that the most vulnerable members of society do not go hungry.
