Saint Tammany Parish food banks and pantries.

Food pantries and soup kitchens across St. Tammany parish try to meet the need of low income families. The centers will offer emergency support as well as information on long term aid, such as applications to SNAP food stamps. Locations are available for a wide range of clients, including senior citizens, families with children, and the disabled.

While there are never any guarantees to receiving assistance from a food bank, the staff at each center do their best to meet the need of residents. Not only can a box of groceries or holiday meal be served in St. Tammany parish, but other programs can include clothing, personal hygiene items, or toys at Christmas. Applications may also be offered to resources such as Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, Summer meals for children, or WIC.
