Free food banks, groceries and pantries in Wood County Ohio.

Several food pantries in Bowling Green and across Wood County can help low income families feed their families. The locations are run by non-profits and charities in the county. However there are also some government assistance programs to try, such as CSFP - Commodity Supplemental Food Program or the state of Ohio's major resource known as SNAP food stamps. Other pantries may pass out clothing or hygiene items.

There are restaurants, individuals, and grocery stores that donate items to the food banks as well as soup kitchens. There may be boxes of groceries or perishable food. Other donations range from baked goods, such as bread loaves, diary items, bagels, baby formula and pastries. If someone is qualified at their local pantry, they can pick up what they need.

Wood County food banks will often keep some items in freezers to keep them fresh. This will be more perishable goods. Lastly, using volunteers from across Wood County, arrangements can sometimes be made to deliver hot meals or boxes of groceries to community members who are homebound, such as the homebound or senior citizens.
