Food Pantries and Emergency Help

Emergency help, such as food pantries and soup kitchens, can fill in gaps between other food assistance programs.

If you need a meal, call 215-430-0556 to find out where you can go for help.

Food pantries

Food pantries provide food to help those at risk of hunger. They can tell you about community organizations and resources, such as programs that teach families about nutrition. Food pantries offer:

  • Packaged foods (pasta, cereal, rice)
  • Canned goods (fruits, vegetables, tuna and soup)
  • Personal care items
  • Fresh produce and meats*
  • Dairy (eggs, yogurt and milk)*

* If available

Some food pantries may require a photo ID or other proof that you live in their service area. Food pickup may be limited to certain days of the week.

To find a food pantry near you, call 215-430-0556.
