Salvation Army Mobile Canteen

The Salvation Army Mobile Canteen is essentially a mobile kitchen, a van stocked with meals that travels to various locations to feed the hungry on the streets inCorpus Christi. The Church of the Good Shepherd volunteers who participate in this ministry supply the food, prepare the meals, and ride in the Salvation Army’s Mobile Canteen van to deliver the meals.  Our scheduled night to run the canteen is the fourth Monday of every month.

More volunteers are always needed for this important and rewarding ministry.  Although only adults are permitted to ride in the van, supplying the food and preparing the meals is a wonderful ministry in which to engage children and youth. For more information on how to get involved, please call the Church Office at 361-882-1735.
