How To Find Food

Those in need of food throughout Foodlink’s 10-county service area are encouraged to contact 2-1-1 to learn about food-related resources in your area. Many of Foodlink’s member agencies and programs are provided, either by calling, texting (898-211) or visiting their website, https://211lifeline.org/ .

Aside from continuing to support hundreds of our hunger-relief partners throughout the region as the regional food bank, Foodlink is also collaborating with numerous community partners throughout our service area to provide boxes of groceries via no-touch, drive-thru distributions.

Monroe County sites require pre-registration through 2-1-1 (text 898-211). No walk-ups or unregistered people will be served at these locations.

Visit our EFSB page for a complete list of sites throughout our 10-county region — many of which operate on a first come, first served basis.
