Clark County and Springfield Ohio free food pantries.

Many families are struggling to feed their families. The Clark County Ohio region is supported by a number of pantries, food banks, and non-profit charity type organizations. The centers focus on helping individuals, low income families, and senior citizens get the food, holiday meals, and even hygiene supplies they need.

Hundreds of individuals receive support every month. Many of the people using a local food bank are doing so for the first time. The pantries can be a great place to turn to in an emergency and can provide free or low cost groceries, baby formula, breads, and more to those that qualify. While not as common, some of the Clark County Ohio locations may have other supplies as well, such as clothing or they can provide applications for government aid, such as food stamps.

Locations are open limited hours, may have waiting lists, but they will try to help all who request it. If you are struggling or facing a hardship, call a Springfield area pantry for support.
