Deschutes County food pantries.

Low income families in Deschutes County can get help from food pantries. There are several in the region, including the city of Bend. The goal of the non-profit food banks is to help ensure low income families, the disabled as well as seniors citizens have some type of groceries for their households. Secondary goals will be offering holiday meals and other basic goods, such as clothing or personal hygiene items.

The specifics of each agency vary widely based on factors such as the applicant's income, whether they are working or not, and cause of the crisis. In general, the Deschutes County food banks will try not to turn anyone away. So they will give a free box of groceries, perishable goods, or similar items. Or the staff at the center will refer a resident to other financial aid or programs such as SNAP food stamps.
