Free food banks and pantries in Yamhill County.

The towns and communities of rural Yamhill County have several food pantries that can help struggling as well as low income families. Most of them are located at small charity organizations and/or churches, and they will also require an appointment to be made. But each center tries to provide some form of food assistance to the needy, or they offer referrals to other programs in the community.

Depending on the Yamhill County food bank or pantry, some centers also provide other supplies to clients.
