Free food pantries Philadelphia.

Low-income families will get free food in Philadelphia and the southeastern Pennsylvania region. Churches, non-profit agencies, community centers, charities and other organizations help feed families and individuals.  The Philly area is supported by dozens of emergency food pantries as well as soup kitchens. The food banks near you in the city of Philadelphia and county are listed below. May are open today.

Qualified families, senior citizens and single moms (among others) can receive emergency food boxes, meals, perishable or free personal hygiene items, and other support. There are also Meals on Wheels programs for the homebound as well as free holiday food baskets and baby formula programs. Also find a referral phone number at the bottom of this page for more food assistance in Philadelphia.

Many of the charitable pantries in the city and county of Philadelphia also have volunteers or case managers who are located on site. These individuals can direct individuals to a number of programs that can help them and their families out through a difficult period. The staff help people apply for public aid such as SNAP food stamps or free school lunches for their children

So while the amount of available resources are limited, do not hesitate to call a free food pantry near you if you need some short term assistance. Centers can also often offer seasonal programs, such as providing holiday and Christmas meals, pet food, or Thanksgiving turkey dinners to families, seniors, and the homebound.

Support is also provided by the Coalition Against Hunger in Philadelphia. This regional non-profit can provide free information on food pantries and feeding sites, including meal locations for children during the summer and seniors. However, maybe even more important, staff from the coalition help with applying for government assistance, ranging from disability to SNAP food stamps or LIHEAP. However, low income families can apply for many other services as well, and this is all offered at no cost. More on Greater Philadelphia Coalition Against Hunger.
