  • Salvation Army food pantries provide groceries for families and individuals in need. Food is free.
  • The Emergency Food Pantry is open Monday and Wednesday  from 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm. Call the office for requirements at (740) 345-8120.
  • Food-o-rama (Food Reclamation Program): Open every Thursday at 12:30 pm. First come, first served. No documentation required.

Food Stamp Application Help

We help anyone interested in the Federal Food Support Program get a jump start with a pre-screening. Once we determine eligibility, we offer help filing the application.

Hot Meal Programs and Food Pantries

No one should ever go a day without a meal or feel ashamed about asking for help. That’s why we provide hot meals and free groceries year-round to anyone who needs them. For home-bound seniors, some areas even offer grocery delivery services. The Emergency Food Pantry is open Monday and Wednesday from 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm. Call the office for requirements at (740) 345-8120.
