Findafoodpantry.org is intended to be a user-friendly reference for people in need of food assistance anywhere in the United States, and to save the many communities where such information is not yet available online from having to individually reinvent the wheel.
Frequently Asked Questions
Who are you?
Nonprofit Innovations, Inc. is a 501(c)3 nonprofit that works to develop, test, and share tools and models that leverage existing resources to mitigate hunger. For more information, please visit our website at www.npiinc.org.
How comprehensive is this site?
As of January 2013, we estimate that we currently have information on about 1/3 of the food pantries currently active in the United States. It's a great start, but we have a long way to go.
Where does the information on Findafoodpantry.org come from?
Most of it was either gathered by volunteers, entered directly by the food pantries themselves, or provided by other hunger relief groups. If you know about a food pantry in your community that isn't in our database, please take a moment to add it.
How can I help?
Besides adding and updating information about food pantries, you can also help by posting about this site on your blog, sharing it on Facebook or Twitter, or simply telling people about it. The more folks who know we're here, the more people we can help!
