Ashtabula County food banks and pantries.
There are several specific locations of food pantries in Ashtabula County. The locations help local families and individuals that are in need of a meal. They will generally give out a free bag or box of groceries, but some of the food pantries also operate soup kitchens which will serve a hot meal to the resident.
The food is generally given to people that have an address that is close to the pantry. So these are localized services. Many of the primary food banks and pantries that operate in the Ashtabula County area are listed below. If there is not a site that is near where the household lives, then they can often offer referrals to a more convenient location.
If a client has long term needs, then the food pantries may assist with those as well. They are a source of information for people on how to apply for SNAP food stamps or other support such as the USDA Commodity Supplemental Food Program. Other help is given too, including clothing or holiday meals.
