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 of food banks is in every county in the country. There are many different forms of food assistance for you and your family.

Our Food Assistance Programs

Hunger has no boundaries. It affects millions of children, seniors, and households in communities across the country. That’s why 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.
