Where to find free, nutritious food during the COVID-19 crisis

In response to continued shutdowns because of the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic, the city of Philadelphia is partnering with Share Food Program and Philabundance to get food to residents in need during this public health crisis.

The sites are open Mondays and Thursdays from 10 a.m. – 12 p.m. Residents can pick up one box per household. Supplies will last up to five days. Residents do not need to present an ID or proof of income for eligibility. For the list of sites, go to Phila.gov.

The city continues to offer free student meal sites at 49 schools. You can also find that list on Phila.gov. 

There are also plenty of ways to get food in Montgomery County and across the region if you know people in need and want to share information. We want to make sure everyone has access to food during this crisis.

REMINDER

Organizations like MANNA and Meals on Wheels need your help during this pandemic. Please reach out to these great organizations if you’re able to help others.

You can also donate or volunteer with The Food Trust, Montgomery County Hunger Action Network, Philabundance, and Share Food Program (email). We also recommend contacting community nonprofits, churches and organizations to find out how you can seek or give help during the public health crisis.

Remember, you can do your part to stop the spread of the virus by staying home!
