Dallas food pantries and banks.

Food pantries, churches, non-profits and regional food banks in Dallas Texas can provide assistance to those people who are faced with a hardship. A number of assistance programs are offered by many churches, local and national not for profit locations and pantries throughout the region. Programs are offered for people of all religions, backgrounds, ages, and gender. Call a food pantry or distribution center in the Dallas area for information on ways to get help, including food, groceries, baby formula, and other aid.

Many of the locations will not turn people in need of help away. Low cost or free food or groceries may be able to be provided to everyone, regardless of their income, background, or financial situation. If a site can’t meet your needs then they may offer referrals to other nearby sites or help families sign up for other USDA programs, such as food stamps (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)) or summer meals for children.

In some cases the applicant may need to pay a minimal cost towards their food and it will not be free, but everyone can benefit in some form or another. In addition, some of the Dallas food banks can also offer limited financial assistance for bills or other basic need. Or as indicated they can refer individuals to local charities and/or government assistance programs.
