Tulare County food pantries.

Food pantries in Tulare County and Visalia California distribute emergency groceries, meals, and basic goods. The centers may have free food as well as other support to the needy across the community. Most of the aid is offered for free to families in the community; however some of the assistance offered may be limited in scope, so call in advance.

As an example of what may be provided, most food pantries in Tulare County offer perishable foodstuffs, school lunches, fresh fruits and vegetables. Other services in the region may be Christmas and Thanksgiving meals, breads, and government surplus food. Most of the sites also have case managers or volunteers on site that can refer the needy to other government programs and/or charities, including clothing closets, thrift stores, and financial assistance programs.

Some resources are focused on senior citizens and the elderly, while others support children in the community. If a food pantry can’t meet your needs, or if they are low on funding, they more than often can refer low income families to other assistance programs or social services, including programs like CalFresh, WIC, and more.
