Need Help? Find Food.

Access to the food and help you need

All of us need help sometimes. Now, more than ever, the Feeding America network of food banks is here to help you get access to food and other assistance.

If you need help with food today

The Feeding America network of 200 food banks and 60,000 food pantries and meal programs serve virtually every community in all 50 states, Washington, D.C. and Puerto Rico. Food is free without any expectation of donation or repayment. Food banks and their agencies are dedicated to providing comfortable and confidential services, and visitors should expect a brief intake or check-in process.

Your safety remains a top priority for the Feeding America network. As COVID-19 impacts our nation, many food banks, food pantries, and meal programs are making changes to ensure the safety of visitors and the food they serve. A variety of low or no contact options are now available in many areas, including seniors-only hours, drive-through pantries, expanded home delivery services, and more.

Search by zip code or state using the food bank locator, and contact the food bank that serves your area. They will be able to give you information on the free pantries and programs nearest you.
