Food pantries in San Juan County.

Canned goods, fresh produce, free baby formula, and groceries are just some of what is available at charity run food pantries in San Juan County. There are several distribution centers that families living in poverty can turn to. There is also free food provided to those individuals with a short term crisis.

Not only can a pantry help meet the immediate need, but case workers are also a source of information on other local non-profits or government programs. The San Juan County food pantries can direct clients to disability benefits, help the homebound enroll into Meals on Wheels, and also provide other aid, such as housing, medical equipment, or holiday meals.
