Food Assistance from Our Agency Network
We feed families through our network of agency partners. Food pantries and drive-through mobile distributions provide groceries to take home. Some of these groceries are provided by the TEFAP* federal nutrition program. Community kitchens provide prepared meals for families to eat on-site.
To find a partner near you, visit our Food Locator.
* This institution is an equal opportunity provider.
Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)
SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) is another good option for families. SNAP provides benefits on an EBT card that works like a debit card and allows families to purchase food at grocery stores that meets their dietary and cultural needs.
