Improving Access to Nutritious, Healthy Food

The following national organization strives to help feed families and individuals in need:

The USDA National Hunger Hotline (1-866-348-6479), managed by World Hungry Year (WHY), provides crucial assistance to Americans across the country in need of food assistance. The Hotline connects individuals in need to emergency food in their community, government assistance programs, find foodand various social services.

In addition to assisting individuals in need, the Hotline also fields hundreds of calls from organizations, donors, and volunteers looking for information on emergency food distribution, nutrition, funding sources, and other related topics. The majority of the Hotline calls, however, are from individuals in need of assistance. Walking the middle ground between referral service and crisis, the Hotline makes every effort to provide its callers with whatever it is they may need, be it the phone number to a food stamp office, a listing of local food pantries, or simply a compassionate ear.

This is a clearinghouse that references people to get emergency food assistance like food pantries, fresh meat, soup kitchens, etc. They also provide information on rent and utility information and programs for women & children. The hotline can only provide information for the assistance they have in their database that is applicable to your city. Call the hotline to find out what help is available to you.

The Hotline is operated Monday to Friday 9 am to 5 pm and Saturdays 10 am to 2 pm E.S.T. Call 1-866-348-6479.
