Indiana County food pantries.

Senior citizens, low income families, and individuals that are struggling can get free food. There are several programs in Indiana County that focus on feeding residents. While food pantries can be used, there are also Meals on Wheels services for the homebound, non-perishable groceries from charities, and also infant or baby formula.

Some of the assistance is available using referrals, such as from the regional Indiana County Catholic Charities. The staff direct clients to everything from soup kitchens to meal delivery services. Other support is arranged by the County's Assistance Office, and they will help the client apply for SNAP food stamps or other benefits.

However, in a crisis, a food pantry may always be the best option. They can offer groceries, cereal, baby formula, and even Christmas meals or clothing year round. These locations tend to be the most flexible in what they offer.
