What are the effects of food insecurity?
Food insecurity can have a wide impact, depending on each individual’s circumstances. Some of the most common, yet complex, effects of food insecurity include:
serious health complications, especially when people facing hunger are forced to choose between spending money on food and medicine or medical care;
damage to a child’s ability to learn and grow; and
difficult decisions for seniors — often living on fixed incomes — such as choosing between paying for food and critical healthcare.
Below is our current list of Sharon food pantries.
We not only provide listings of pantries, but we also provide information on: food closets, food banks, soup kitchens, congregate meal locations, food boxes, vouchers, etc.
Our comprehensive list of food assistance programs provides full descriptions, pictures, hours, volunteer information, etc.
Food locations provided are faith based, government and non profit. We list them all.
If you know of a food pantry that is not included in our list, please submit new food resources to our database by going to the ADD A LISTING link on the header of our website. Provide as much volunteer information as possible as we are the top resources for volunteering at food pantries.
