Find your food bank

A food bank is a place where staples are stored and distributed to those who need them, as opposed to a program that distributes perishable food goods or cooked food. If you’re wondering where to get food right now, you might want to find your local food bank – you can look it up online at feedingamerica.org or by Googling your town or county and the words “food bank” or “food pantry” or “food share”.

If you are in a position to donate, remember that lots of food banks advertise for donations in the holiday season, but need donations year round. After the holidays food banks are usually low on stores. You might want to find your local food bank – you can look it up online at feedingamerica.org or by Googling your town or county and the words “food bank” or “food pantry” or “food share” – and donate now and donate later.
