WATERLOO, Iowa (KWWL) - The Salvation Army of Waterloo and Cedar Falls is suspending its free noon meal program at the end of this month due to staffing shortages. The last day of the program will be Friday, October 29.
“It is sad that we had to make this decision. Many organizations are struggling to hire right now and given the vulnerability of the population we serve, this has been very difficult,” says Corps Officer, Major Shannon Thies.
The program provides a free lunch to people on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. The Salvation Army is still looking for a part-time food program manager, since their last one resigned in September. The program was being run by other Salvation Army staff but with the holiday bell ringing campaign approaching, they are unable to maintain both.
Those with food service experience are encouraged to apply for the Food Program Manager position through www.indeed.com. For more information, please contact The Salvation army at (319) 235-9358.
