Lee and Russell County food pantries.

Food banks across the counties of Lee and Russel can help families that are facing hunger. The pantries  are mostly located at churches and non-profits in the region. Using donations from the community, and relying on volunteers, the locations may pass out free boxes of food or serve a meal. But much more may be provided too.

Each location will have an application process, which usually requires proof of income, residency, and more. They also may offer distribution at only certain times of the week. However, even if one of the local Lee County pantries can't meet the request, they will have referrals. Many of the locations even offer clients access to a number of other resources, but that will vary by agency.
