Food Assistance for Veterans

Before you or your family go hungry, check out the TN food banks.

Families and individuals who need food can turn to a pantry or free food bank in Tennessee. Several primary locations take the lead in distributing groceries, canned goods, and other food items to the low income and needy. They will often coordinate with other local non-profits, churches, and pantries in your neighborhood, so referrals and other support will generally be provided.

With the increasing cost of groceries and other household items, more and more people are receiving free food from the pantries and food banks in Tennessee. Contact a location for groceries, including produce, breads, and meat. Many locations may also be able to provide counseling and advice on resources such as food stamps, baby formula, clothing closets, and holiday meals.

In addition to distributing free groceries, many of the Tennessee pantries may have special holiday meals and gift services.
