Food Pantries and other resources

Free food pantries, groceries and charitable food banks in Bergen County

Free food banks, soup kitchens and pantries in Bergen County provide assistance to local individuals as well as to families. They help both low income residents and people facing an emergency. Different pantries can provide free non-perishable food, meals, groceries, personal hygiene items, and other support to those in need. Note: some food pantries are open for only limited hours; some pantries serve only those people who reside in specific towns. Always check ahead. The list with addresses and phone numbers is below.
