FOOD for Lane County provides food to over 30 emergency food pantries. Most of the over 8 million pounds of food we distribute annually is distributed in food boxes by emergency food pantries. These pantries provide a variety of fresh and shelf-stable groceries to low-income families and individuals.
Getting a food box
A food box is 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.
- If you are without a permanent residence, you can still get food.
- You do not need to supply identification, a Social Security number or proof of income to get food.
- You can still get a food box even if you are receiving other benefits, such as food stamps or WIC.
- Each household can get up to 18 food boxes a year.
