People who are unable to leave their homes for groceries can send a proxy to a pantry to pick up food on their behalf.

Most of the over 8 million pounds of food we collect annually is distributed by our network of more than 30 food pantries. These pantries provide a variety of fresh and shelf-stable groceries to low-income families and individuals.

Visiting a food pantry

A typical visit to a pantry will provide a three- to five-day supply of nutritionally balanced groceries. As of July 1, 2019, we will begin a pilot year of removing service boundaries for easier access to food pantries.

  • See if you meet the USDA’s eligibility requirements (2020 income requirements plus sign-in sheet, Eng and Span)
  • If you are without a permanent residence, you can still get food.
  • You will not be asked to provide identification, a Social Security number or proof of income to get food.
  • You can still visit a pantry even if you are receiving other benefits, such as food stamps or WIC.
  • Each household can get up to 18 food boxes a year at each pantry location.

The FOOD for Lane County facilities on Bailey Hill Road and West Broadway are warehouses and do not provide food assistance. However, we are glad to provide food resource referrals. Please contact us at 541-343-2822 or here learn about a food pantry or meal site that will meet your needs. You may also contact Lane 211 for more resource information.
