Need something else?

You can get free food from a food pantry or soup kitchen.

Food pantries give you groceries to use at home. Packages include canned goods and other non-perishable food items. You would be given enough food to make more than one meal per person.

Soup kitchens serve meals at community centers. Mobile soup kitchens serve meals from vans. Each person gets one meal.

Find a food provider.

Call the food pantry or soup kitchen first to confirm their hours before visiting.
