Wood County food pantries.

Services from the Wood County based food pantries focus on ending, or reducing, hunger in the community. While that is always the main goal, some of the charities may also offer other forms of assistance. This can include, but is not limited too, Meals on Wheels for senior citizens, clothing, Christmas gifts or meals, and much more.

When it comes to the distribution of food, a family will often get a box of goods to address the emergency. The contents may vary widely based on donations. The Parkersburg pantries may offer fruits, vegetables, non-perishable canned goods, baby formula, and more. The staff will refer clients to other support, ranging from soup kitchens to food stamp intake sites.
