  7. What do I have to bring?

  9. Do I need an appointment?

    Every location is different! Some places in Old Providence accept appointments, some require it, and others allow walk-ins. Please review all details on the resource page to understand how you should prepare for your visit.

  10. What kind of food do they have?

    Food pantries offer grocery-style items such as canned food, fresh produce, and dry goods like pasta or rice that you can cook yourself. Soup kitchens offer ready-to-eat items like hot meals or sandwiches. All of these locations may have different options on different days, so it is hard to tell what each one of them will offer any given day.

  11. Do they have vegetables?

    Pantries may have different options at different times, so it is hard to tell what each one of them will offer any given day. Most pantries in Old Providence do give out some form of vegetables, but they may be canned items.

  12. Do they have meat?

    Pantries may have different options on different days, so it’s hard to tell what each one of them will offer any given day.
