Free food banks in Sullivan County Tennessee.

Families in Sullivan County can get help feeding their family. Whether they are in a crisis, or struggling over the short term, a food pantry can often assist. The locations, which operate as non-profits, do their best to provide food, personal hygiene items, and more to struggling families. Some of the Sullivan County food banks even coordinate financial aid or benefits, such as WIC vouchers, for clients.

Not only may a pantry offer a wide array of services to the needy, but they also try to focus on certain groups of people as well. This means that if an individual has a certain diet (such as a senior citizen or newborn), the pantries may offer baby formula or free Ensure. They also offer other basic items, ranging from free Thanksgiving or Christmas meals to clothing, diapers, and much more.

The food pantries are open limited hours and generally only focus on families that are local to it. For information, including for referrals, is below. Or if this is a crisis, try emergency food stamps for help.
