How to Find Free Food in Philadelphia

Posted by City of Philadelphia on October 4, 2022

All Philadelphians can find free food and meals using the City’s locator. The free food locator is available in six languages: English, Spanish, Chinese, Vietnamese, Russian, and French. It includes a map where you can put in an address to find the closest free food and meal sites.

On the locator, residents can find food sites with free groceries, general meal sites with free prepared meals, and older adult meal sites year-round. The locator includes free student meal sites during summer and school breaks. No ID is required at food sites, general meal sites, and student meal sites.

Residents and community partners can find Food Access flyers available in more than 10 languages here.

The free food and meals locator also includes links to additional food resources. Check it out.
