Food Pantries are a wonderful source of additional foods for your family. A Pantry receives food from the Food Banks so they are able to offer a variety of foods to choose from.
Shopping with your EBT card and then visiting a Food Pantry will help to stretch your food dollars and make menu planning much easier with these additional foods.
