Find a Pantry

If you are unable to find one in your community, WhyHunger and United Way/211 are available for you. Both are excellent organizations that offer a number of services that will be of assistance to you.

You can also visit your states 2-1-1 web site by clicking on your state below.

They have people you can talk to 24 hours a day to find the services you need and it’s completely confidential.

If United Way or WhyHunger helps you find a food pantry (or closet or shelf or bank or cupboard), help it get you locally grown fresh garden produce by printing the flier at www.AmpleHarvest.org/pantry and give it to the pantry manager. Urge them to register their food pantry at www.AmpleHarvest.org as soon as possible. Remind them it is free!
