Community Food Guide
We know how important access to nutritious food is to you and your family. That’s why we created an online food access guide with information on programs that can help you save money while eating healthy.
SNAP stands for Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program. In Pennsylvania, SNAP participants get an ACCESS card, also called an Electronic Benefits Transfer or EBT card, to purchase food.
There are programs dedicated to help you get the most out of your assistance program. This includes the Share Food Program, Philly Food Bucks and the Senior’s Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program.
WIC (Women, Infants and Children) supports pregnant women and children under 5 years of age. It’s a great way to get healthy fruit, vegetables, grains and dairy for mothers, babies and children.
Meal programs for children and youth may be available from June to August when school is not in session. Text "Food" to 877877 to get connected to meals in your area.
Quick help is available such as food pantries and soup kitchens that can fill in gaps between other food assistance programs.
