DeSoto Food and Resource Center

 

All Faiths Food Bank is the only food bank serving DeSoto County and has provided programs and services in the community for more than 15 years. In May 2019, to help community members gain long-term food security, better health outcomes, and self-sufficiency, the food bank opened its doors to a Food and Resource Center, a one-stop shop where clients can meet with staff to assess their needs, receive or be referred to services, and receive emergency food.

Services include: 

-Extended days and hours for distribution, including evenings and weekends to serve those who cannot access other All Faiths Food Bank food distributions

-Free emergency food*

-Free application assistance for SNAP (formerly known as food stamps), Medicaid, and TANF

-Group education opportunities

*If you attend any All Faiths Food Bank Mobile Distributions, there must be a 14-day gap of services in order to receive food at the DeSoto Food and Resource Center.
