When life throws many curveballs at a time, anyone could find themselves in need of food assistance. The Food Bank of the Southern Tier assists individuals by distributing donated foods to partner food pantries in the region and by connecting those in need to local meal programs. The food bank also has a mobile food pantry, which distributes fresh produce, dairy items, and other foods throughout the Southern Tier at certain locations.
According to the food bank, 41% of children in its service area face food insecurity, and so the organization places an emphasis on food aid for kids, such as its Kids’ Farmers Market, Kids Summer Meals, and BackPack programs.
The Food Bank of the Southern Tier also provides information for individuals about further assistance, such as SNAP benefits.
