Ross County and Chillicothe Ohio food banks and pantries.

Churches, ministries, and food pantries provide groceries and meals to Chillicothe and Ross County Ohio residents. Assistance is available to anyone who needs help, regardless of the applicants background, income, or religion. In addition to groceries, most of the food banks also have clothing, counseling, and other assistance such as personal care items or products.

The food banks and churches give groceries and free or low cost food to families in need. Many of the centers are open limited hours, and will limit how much assistance they provide to families and individuals across Ross County. If they can’t meet your need, they may refer you to other local charities or public aid like food stamps. Note that many of the pantries, especially those in churches, will require people to call first to make an appointment as the hours of the facilities are so limited.  If you live in Ross County Ohio, and need help, call one or more of the food banks below for food assistance.
