Free food pantries in Wayne County Ohio.

Several non-profits and charities in Wayne County offer food assistance to needy families, seniors, and others. Many of the people calling upon the pantries are doing so for the first time and it is mostly due to the challenging economic environment. What may be offered includes canned goods, bags of groceries, fruits, vegetables, and even special Thanksgiving meals.

Hundreds of residents from Wooster and the surrounding county turn to a food bank each month for their basic needs. If a center can’t meet your needs, then referrals may be offered. For example, some of the non-profits can provide information on state of Ohio benefits such as SNAP food stamps, government commodities and similar support.
