Orange County California food pantries.

Food pantries in the Orange County California region help thousands of families every month. People of all backgrounds and income levels have turned to a local food bank when they are faced with difficult times. The exact type of services and resources will vary by center, as well as the hours. It is recommended to call a center first, before stopping by.

Many of the food pantries will offer individuals a pre-set package of free or low cost non-perishable groceries or canned goods, depending upon availability. Some of the perishable items that may be available, include, but are not limited to fruits, breads, vegetables, and meats. All items are based on availability of donations and the resources from the specific Orange County food pantry. When available, special needs can be met. For example, baby food, diapers and baby supplies may also be provided to established food pantry clients.

In addition, these locations are a great place to turn to for other support, especially when you are faced with an emergency. For example, may centers can help people apply for government and public programs such as CalFresh, WIC, or summer meals for your children. Some focus on seniors and may have home delivered meals. Other locations may distribute items such as clothing, Thanksgiving and Christmas meals and gifts, and personal hygiene items. Almost all Orange County California food pantries provide information and referrals.
