HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) - If the kitchen is the heart of the home, the Community Kitchen is the heart of the Salvation Army's mission in Huntsville.

The Community Kitchen in Huntsville is open seven days a week, serving meals to the homeless, the working poor and families in need.

It provides about 500 meals a day. In 2015, more than 121,000 meals were served.

After years of constant use, the equipment is showing its age.

The commercial stove is almost 30 years old. The pots and pans - even the ice machine - are wearing out but replacing even just the most essential items will cost an estimated $25,000.

That's why the Salvation Army recently launched a donation drive.

A direct link is now up on its website.

Although there are selections in $25 increments, donations may be made in any amount.

Salvation Army officials say, "we are hoping to raise enough funds to continue 'Doing the Most Good' within our community. If you would like to help, please consider making a donation towards our community kitchen. Thank you and God bless."
