Onondaga County food banks and pantries.

Low income families in Onondaga County can turn to local food pantries for assistance. There are locations run by non-profit agencies as well as churches and charities, and each is committed to helping disadvantaged families. There may be everything from boxes of food passed out in an emergency to referrals to long term support and public aid.

Onondaga County residents, whether they are disabled, seniors, or families with children, have options available to them, thought the hours are limited. Food pantries can provide free help to those facing a crisis. Individuals that are more in a long term hardship can receive referrals to public benefits, such as SNAP food stamps, which may be the best option for them.

Some of the non-profit pantries in the county or Syracuse offer other support too. Examples may be clothing or a free Christmas or Thanksgiving meal. Some will also provide seasonal assistance to children during the holidays or summer. Call a food bank for more details.
