Lehigh County Pennsylvania free food pantries.

Non-profits organizations, churches and charity agencies in Lehigh County operate free or low cost food banks as well as soup kitchens for local residents of the community. The mission of the various pantries near you is to obtain food and then distribute it to people in need of help in the region. In addition to that service, they provide information and referral services in regards to similar services across the greater Pennsylvania area. For example, get information on SNAP food stamps, clothing, the WIC program, and other aid. Find a toll free referral number at the bottom of this page for additional Lehigh County food programs.
