Access to the Food and Help You Need

All of us need help sometimes. If you or someone you know needs access to food or other assistance, the Feeding America network is here to help.

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 available to anyone who needs it without obligation, regardless of circumstance and it is free and confidential.

We’re here to make finding food simple. 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.

Make sure you’re covered for the months ahead

Sometimes it takes a while to get back on your feet. To supplement the immediate food assistance the Feeding America network provides, you might be eligible to receive SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) benefits. Federal programs like SNAP, which currently helps 1 in 7 Americans, offer families the extra help they need to purchase nutritious food during difficult times.

Are you eligible? Find out if you are eligible and learn how to access your SNAP benefits.
