Palm Beach County Resources

Food Pantry and Additional Services within Palm Beach County

Emergency food can be provided to Palm Beach County residents from churches, food banks and pantries. The goal is to help them temporarily meet their needs for assistance. Many locations can also offer clothing, referrals, and information on other Florida and Palm Beach assistance programs, including WIC, food stamps, and summer meals for children.

Many of the locations have created programs that acquire groceries and food products through donations from members of the community. The goods may be provided to the pantry from canned food drives or government surplus programs. The pantries then distribute the food, for free or low cost, to families and individuals in Palm Beach who are faced with a crisis or emergency situation.

Other services are available as well. Some of the food pantries also can provide hot meals, access to soup kitchen, and deliver food to senior citizens and disabled individuals in the county. Another focus is on feeding children during the summer and breaks in the school year. They offer referrals. Also, clients can learn about government resources such as the Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP), free snack backpacks for children, or SNAP food stamps.
