The Feeding America network is here to help.

If you are in a situation where you need free food or free groceries, we’re here for you. The Feeding America network is in every county in the country. There are many different forms of food assistance for you and your family.

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

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 Pantries

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.
