HOW TO FIND FOOD NOW

We partner with other Orange County nonprofits by providing them with food so they can give you the help you need, when you need it most.

For food assistance locations and free CalFresh application help:

2-1-1 of Orange County will pick up the phone 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and can assist callers in multiple languages.

*Please note: Second Harvest Food Bank does not distribute food to individuals at its Irvine location. You must go to a food pantry to receive food. Call 211 for help or click here to find a food distribution near you.

CALFRESH ASSISTANCE & P-EBT

The CalFresh program or SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program), helps food-insecure individuals and families put food on their tables. CalFresh benefits alleviate financial stress and increase access to healthy food.

Call 211 to find out if you qualify for CalFresh and complete your application by phone or in person.

PANDEMIC EBT: The pandemic has made it harder to feed the whole family. Pandemic EBT (or P-EBT) is a federal program that gives eligible families food benefits to replace meals lost at child care or school because of the pandemic. More information on P-EBT, including the new P-EBT 3.0 program, can be found by CLICKING HERE
