Where to Find Food


Please consult the following list for information about where to find food in our region that are part of our emergency food network in the community. We will do our best to keep it updated. These are agencies actively open for families at this point. Community meal sites are doing to-go containers or take out, and pantries have pre-packed bags with most either by single appointment only, or curbside pickups. You can also always dial 2-1-1 for free 24/7 for updated information.


We host numerous mobile distributions each month. Visit our events calendar to find upcoming distributions. Families receive a box containing produce, protein, nonperishables, and more. No registration is required and it is conducted on a first-come, first-served basis. Please wear a mask and remain in your car. Volunteers will load the box into your trunk. You can also always dial 2-1-1 for free 24/7 for updated information.
