York Pennsylvania food pantries.

People of all backgrounds and incomes who need help can contact one or more of the food banks and pantries below. The distribution centers across York County can not only provide free food, groceries, and perishable items (as resources allow) but many offer other aid and information on social service programs too. For example, learn where and how to apply for food stamps, or other government aid like WIC.

The centers all partner with the greater York County Food Bank, which coordinates the various programs and services among all local churches, charities, non-profits, and pantries. Usually the number of times people can access a pantry is limited to a certain number of times per month, and the amount of free food that an individual can take away from a location is usually also limited, and may factor in the number of family members, someone’s household income, and other resources. However they are yet one more place to call for help.
