Food Banks:

The Greater Washington County Food Bank (GWCFB.org) is open and has increased operations. If you are out of work without pay, you are eligible to receive food sourced from the state and federal government from a food bank or food pantry in Pennsylvania. This includes service workers who are unable to get shifts or hourly wage employees of non-essential businesses that have voluntarily closed due to COVID-19 mitigation.

You will need to complete an application for supplemental food assistance, and signatures have been temporarily waived due to COVID-19. You will be asked to provide your household size and weekly income level as of the day you apply. Complete income guidelines can be found at agriculture.pa.gov. Please call (724) 632 – 2190 x 107 to verbally complete your Application for Supplemental Food Assistance, or complete online on our sign-up page.
