Salvation Army Serves Up An Easter Meal


By Katie Stinson

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa - "Nobody's walking away hungry today!" That was the motto today for volunteers and organizers serving up the Salvation Army's annual Easter meal in Cedar Rapids today.

More than 200 people gathered at the Salvation Army this afternoon to fill-up on some Easter staples, like ham, potatoes and veggies.
This celebratory meal was served up with side of fellowship today, as people sat around brightly colored tables taking in the aromas of a hearty meal and enjoying a friendly conversation.

"This is a place where they can come meet those needs whether they be social, be it physical, be it spiritual. This is an opportunity we have to share with our neighbors," Lt. Michael Sjogren, a Salvation Army Co-Officer said.

Volunteers and organizers prepare more than 50,000 meals a year to feed the hungry. The plates are free for people in the community, but come at a cost for organizers. You can help
by donating to the Salvation Army.
