Cambria County free food pantries.

When you or your family needs food, turn to a pantry or distribution center in the Cambria Pennsylvania region. A number of non-profit organizations, churches, and charities will provide free groceries, food, canned goods, and other items to the low income. Other programs may focus on assisting seniors and children in the community, including home delivered meals or summer snacks for children.

While most of the free pantries are open limited hours, there may be some places to turn to in an emergency. Other available options in Cambria County may include a hot meal from soup kitchens, senior centers, and churches. All of these locations may have food boxes or hunger prevention resources for the low income and less fortunate. While not as common, some centers may offer clothing and other household goods or applications to government programs such as food stamps.
