Our Free Food and Grocery Programs
Feeding America has programs to reach children, seniors, and families no matter where they live or spend time. At senior centers or schools, in the city or countryside, Feeding America programs get food to people where they are and when they need it most.
Mobile pantries bring free groceries directly to your community. They are a great option for many families, especially in areas where traditional food pantries and stores aren't available.
Drive-thru food pantries allow you to pick up free food without leaving your car. You can pick up shelf-stable food, meat, dairy, fresh fruits and vegetables, and more.
Senior Food Program
Many programs provide seniors with free meals or free groceries. Learn more about the senior food programs available at local food banks.
SNAP Application Assistance
If you or someone you know needs extra help buying groceries, you may qualify for SNAP. The Feeding America network can help you learn about your options and complete your application if you qualify.

Summer Meal Programs
When school lets out, the Feeding America network continues free meal programs for kids, teens, and families. Free summer meals are available in communities throughout the country.
Looking for extra help with groceries on the weekend? BackPack programs provide children and families with free, easy-to-make meals for the weekend and school breaks.
School Pantry Program
School pantries are partnerships between food banks and schools. These pantries are located in or near schools so it is as easy as possible for students and families to pick up food.
Kids Cafes are after-school programs that give free meals to kids after school, on the weekends, and during the summer. They also have fun activities and tutoring.
