A non profit, gluten-free and dairy-free food pantry in Plymouth Meeting, PA. In 2019, we innovated to a zero waste, online pantry. We support our clients by direct ordering the exact allergy-safe food they need and distributing grocery store gift cards.
Our mission is to provide special dietary foods (gluten free, heart healthy, diabetic friendly, foods free of one or more of the top 8 allergens) and fresh produce to low-income families. We do this by distributing this type of food to over 20 food pantries.
Our mission is to improve health and end hunger in individuals diagnosed with food allergies and celiac disease through access to safe and healthy food, nutrition education, and advocacy.
In response to COVID-19, Food Equity Initiative (FEI) has suspended all in-person pantry services. Contact FEI for information about their shipping service.
While our service delivery at the Howard County Food Bank is typically rooted in client-choice, beginning on Tuesday, March 17, 2020, we will be providing pre-packaged bags of food to clients, in order to practice social distancing and protect the well-being of our staff and clients. New clients should bring identification and proof of Howard County residency for their first visit.
The Celiac and Allergy Friendly Food Initiative (CAFFI) is a nonprofit organization, established by two Stow residents, Amy Adams and Lisa Herman. The Celiac and Allergy Friendly Food Initiative works in partnership with Portage County Family and Community Services in order to have space to store food and to distribute food through Summit and Portage County Food Pantries.
The Celiac and Allergy Friendly Food Initiative will have one pantry date for April. It will be on April 2nd at 1357 Home Ave. Akron. We will have an am pickup from 10:00-12:00 and a pm pickup from 1:00-3:00. If you would like to come to this pantry, please call (330) 603-7644 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know if you would like a morning or afternoon pickup. We ask that you stay in your car in the parking lot and call us when you arrive. We will bring your food out and put it in your trunk.
The S.A.F.E. – Supplying Allergy Friendly and Emergency – Food Pantry is an all-volunteer, 501(c)(3) organization in Howard County, Maryland. Under the leadership of the Board of Directors, we work to fulfill our mission to educate, inspire, and engage the community about the necessity for gluten free and allergy-friendly food and provide that safe food to those in need.
To serve our existing clients during this health crisis, we are implementing the S.A.F.E. Food Pantry Emergency Assistance Program so our clients get access to the food they need to stay healthy. Our Board of Directors approved this program because we are unable to provide gluten free and allergy-friendly food through our partners at this time. Households that submitted an application prior to March 15, 2020 and were approved for services at the Howard County Food Bank or the Emergency Food Pantry can apply for a one-time $50 grocery store gift card to purchase gluten free and allergy-friendly items. Grocery store gift cards are available for Giant Food, Harris Teeter, Safeway, or Wegmans. The fastest way to apply is online at our website. You can also call or text us at 443-741-1060, or email us at email@example.com . We will return your message as soon as possible.

They are able to regularly offer fresh fruits, vegetables, beans, nuts/seeds, eggs, milk, other dairy products, sometimes various meats. They get gluten-free bread intermittently.
Their only requirement is that people are residents of Washington County, RI. For a gluten-free diet, it is recommended that they attend their indoor shopping shifts on Wednesday nights 630-730 or Thursday mornings 930-1130 so they can look at the labels and assess.
If someone happens to come to a drive-thru shift tell them to let whoever is packing their car that they are gluten free so they can pick through the distributed items and give them the proper foods.
Gluten-free products regularly supplied (weekly receive GF bread, monthly receive GF pasta and GF condiments and sometimes other mixed GF items).
