New Texting Feature Helps You Locate Area Meal Sites

You can now locate all free meal sites — as well as food pantries — in your area with a simple text from your cell phone.

Just text HELP NETWORK to 898211.

At the prompt, enter “1” for information about food pantries, or “2” to learn about free meal sites near you. You’ll automatically receive the address and hours of operation for whichever option you choose.

The free meal sites locator has recently been added to this texting feature, joining the information about food pantries, which went into service last year.
