Emergency Disaster Services

Our local community Emergency Disaster Services are ready to respond as soon as disaster strikes Grand Traverse and Leelanau counties. We provide immediate physical, emotional and spiritual assistance as well as hot food and beverages to victims and first responders with our mobile feeding unit.

While every disaster is unique and creates its own special needs, the core of The Salvation Army's disaster program consists of several basic services. And while these services address many of the typical needs of a disaster survivor, Salvation Army disaster relief is also flexible. Our services are adapted to the specific needs of individuals and communities and scalable according to the magnitude of the disaster. 

The most visible Salvation Army disaster service is most often the hot meals and cold drinks served from our Salvation Army mobile kitchen. The Salvation
Army  "canteen" is a full service "kitchen on wheels" that can prepare and serve approximately 1,500 meals a day.
