Food support is available
1 in 8 Americans will experience food insecurity during their lifetimes. If you're facing food insecurity, you are not alone, and Google has created this site to help you find community-based support.
Find local support

We’ve created a locator tool that you can use to find your nearest food bank, food pantry or school lunch program pickup site. To use the tool, simply enter an address into the search bar and information for the sites closest to you will be displayed. If possible, call a location before you visit to verify days/hours they are open and any requirements. If you can’t find a nearby location, you may be able to find support options in the additional food support resources list below.

  • The Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) provides federal grants to states for supplemental foods, health care referrals, and nutrition education for low-income pregnant, breastfeeding, and non-breastfeeding postpartum women, and to infants and children up to age five who are found to be at nutritional risk. Visit this site to learn more and determine whether you might be eligible for benefits.
  • Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) is a USDA run benefit that provides resources to families who have lost access to free or reduced-price school meals due to school closures. Benefits are loaded onto EBT cards used to purchase food. Most states and some territories have been approved to run P-EBT programs for the 2020-2021 school year. To see if your state or territory is in the approved list, simply look for it in the drop-down box below, then click on "visit website" to visit your location's P-EBT site.
State

Many military families face unique challenges, including frequent relocations that can make it challenging to navigate available benefits and support options. Even for military families who don’t qualify for SNAP, there are a host of other benefits available and organizations that can provide support. The Military Family Advisory Network has compiled a number of relevant resources, and the Armed Services YMCA provides food support in some locations, as well as other support options like childcare.

Many states and communities offer nutritional benefits and assistance programs.
