Food Banks & Related Resources

Post by Guest on Thu Feb 24, 2011 11:54 pm

This OP will be updated regularly as members post new resources. This will be a list of various food banks and agencies that you can rely on to help with food.


To register with the food bank, you have to show proof of ID for all members of your household. If married (or partner), you need to get a copy of your spouse’s/partner’s driver’s license also. If you have kids, you’ll need a copy to prove their identity (check with the food bank to see what they require as proof). They need to know how many adults and how many children are part of your household. Families that have children under 18 y/o will get the much needed eggs, milk, meats, etc. They will take SNAP cards. Each week 5.7 million Americans receive assistance from Feed America.

Food banks are now very overwhelmed with so many new customers and I supplement by purchasing my meats/chicken/fish food boxes which I order once a month from Angel Food Ministries.


Offer low cost food boxes – You can purchase total meal boxes and/or chicken, beef, pork, fish boxes, fruits and vegetables boxes, kid’s snacks boxes as they offer a variety of food menu plans which are one-half of what you’d pay at a grocery store. Distribution centers are locatable by putting in your zip code and you can order online or pay in advance at the distribution center. They will take SNAP cards.

I just joined this morning and was going to post my post from the other forum, but you beat me to it. The Feed America website is not that user friendly and it can take some navigating to find food banks in your area. If you cannot locate any food banks in your zip code/city, enter either the zip code/city of the next closet neighboring city to where you live. I suggest if you're having difficulty with this, use the Contact Us at top of home page to email Feed America for help. Could not find a phone number.

SHARE Food Program for PA, DE, NJ MD E. Shore

This is a good one for those in the PA, DE, NJ and Eastern MD. It goes once a month, and you can pick up a big box of food staples for $20. ANYONE qualifies. This is nice, since I did not qualify for food stamps.
