Free food and resources
Whenever you need it, we have the resources to assist you in bringing nutritious meals – and more – home. Check out the programs available in the Feeding America network:
Food distributions offer free food and groceries to individuals and families. They provide enough food to last 2 to 3 days.
Mobile pantries come to your community. They bring free food and groceries right to your neighborhood. This is a great option if you live where food pantries and stores are hard to find.
SNAP application assistance
If you need extra help buying groceries, you may qualify for SNAP. Connect with your local food bank and learn how to apply.
Free food for kids
There are many programs to help children and teens have food before, during and after school.
Looking for extra help on the weekend? BackPack programs give children free, easy-to-make meals for the weekend and school breaks.
School pantries are partnerships between food banks and schools, making it easy for students to pick up food for their families.
Kids Cafes offer free meals to kids after school, on the weekends, and during the summer. They also have fun activities and tutoring.
