Local Food Pantry Information
A Food Pantry is a community site that distributes food and other products directly to those facing hunger
The FCCAA Food Bank is Fayette County’s designated warehouse for the collection and storage of food for individuals in need of food assistance. Each year, the Food Bank collects and distributes over 2 million pounds of food to approximately 10,000 individuals. The food is distributed through a network of volunteer food pantries, congregate feeding sites, and soup kitchens. Through the network of area agencies and food pantries, the FCCAA Food Bank continues its mission of providing proper food and nourishment to the community.
Food Bank programs include emergency food assistance for anyone who is in need, the PA Senior Food Box Program for seniors, and the Weekend Snack Pack Program, which provides children with a backpack filled with food to help fill a nutritional void.
Information on local emergency feeding programs and resources is also available through the USDA National Hunger Hotline. If you need food assistance, call 1-866-3-HUNGRY or 1-877-8-HAMBRE to speak with a representative who will find food resources such as meal sites, food banks, and other social services available near your location. The USDA National Hunger Hotline operates from 7:00 AM – 10:00 PM Eastern Time.
