More than 49 million Americans live in households that don’t have enough food to feed their families every day, yet our country produces enough food to feed everyone.
If you live in one of those households, you are not alone. 2-1-1 can connect you with programs that can help.
2-1-1 provides information about school lunch programs and summer food service programs for children. You can get information on government-sponsored programs that reduce hunger and find out if you qualify for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), which helps millions of Americans purchase food through grocery stores, farmers markets and restaurants. To learn more about the benefits of the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children (WIC), which provides food and nutrition education to new mothers, infants and children up to age five, contact your local 2-1-1 chapter.
2-1-1 reaches infants, families, individuals and seniors in your community, but we’re your resource for much more than food assistance and nutrition education. We put you in touch with in-home meal delivery services, seasonal meals and soup kitchens, community gardening support, and volunteer opportunities. No matter your age, health or income level, we’re here to make sure you have everything you need for a lifetime of good health.
