GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

The Salvation Army in Greenville County needs help restocking their shelves to keep providing bags of food to dozens of families every day.

The Salvation Army's food pantry serves three hot meals a day to clients of homeless shelters and the CSRC Rehab Program, as well as homeless living on the streets.

Bags of food are provided to approximately 50 families per day, 52 weeks a year. And right now, they are in need of boxed items.

"[We're in] great need of meat products and also dry goods, dry cereal, hot cereals, cold cereals, all of those," Major Kent Davis said. "Help us make a complete meal for a family. People are in need so were trying to provide that assistance."

Last year, the Salvation Army served more than 100,000 meals to residents of the shelter and nearly 10,000 bags of good to individuals in need.
