Bell County food pantries.

Food assistance in Bell County is available from non-profit pantries. The locations can generally provide some form of emergency help to low income families, seniors, or the disabled. There may be a free box of food given to clients or maybe other basic needs, such as clothing or personal hygiene items. Voluteers are on site to help struggling families.

The food banks in Belton and other towns in the county offer other support as well though. Case managers can generally refer clients to government programs.
