Bay County Florida free food pantries.

Families in the community who need help can contact a food bank or pantry in Bay County Florida. Members of the region, regardless of their religion, background, or race, can get help with meeting their basic needs from a food pantry.

Many churches and charities across Panama City and Bay County run the food pantries. Not only will they usually provide free or low cost emergency boxes of groceries or meals to the needy, but many of the centers are a great place to contact for information on other government programs, such as WIC or food stamps. While not as common, some of the locations may even have items like furniture, clothing, baby formula, or diapers. Some limited funds may be offered too, and they can be paid out to people so they can pay their rent or bills such as utilities.
