Salem and Marion County Oregon food pantries.

Marion County and Salem Oregon food banks can help the low income and needy across the area. The are pantries located at charities, non-profits, and churches. Based on donations available, the centers can provide help to those who need it. The programs and assistance provided range from free food, groceries, and meals, up through clothing. Many non-profits also help families living in or near poverty apply for public aid, including food stamps or WIC vouchers.

The demand for services offered by the Marion County food banks is very high. Unfortunately resources and funding is limited. One of the key benefits of the Salem area food banks as well as the pantries is that they can refer individuals to other resources. For example, learn about and get help in applying for food stamps, school lunches from the state of Oregon, and more. The bottom line is that the food pantries help many families every year. Support is available to clients with meeting their food and nutritional needs.
