Google Launches Food Support Website.

Google Will Now Help You "Find Food Support".

Google has launched a new dedicated website to help those in need to find free food support locations across the US.

The past year of the pandemic has been challenging for everyone, and only worsened the hunger problem in America. Trying to combat this, Google has launched a new dedicated website to help those in need to find free food support locations across the US.

As a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, everyone has experienced challenges and the hunger crisis in the United States. As a result, Google has developed a dedicated web page for those in need of free food support across the United States.

Connecting people to community food services

We know people are looking for ways to get help, including on Google Search. Over the past year, searches for "food bank near me", "Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)", "food stamps application" and "school lunch pick up" reached record highs. 

According to Google blog, "Starting today, you can find free food support all in one place on our new Find Food Support site. The site features a Google Maps locator tool to help you find the nearest food bank, food pantry or school lunch program pickup site in your community. We worked with No Kid Hungry, FoodFinder and the U.S. Department of Agriculture to capture 90,000 places with free food support across 50 states — with more locations to come."

Find Food Support features stigma-busting videos demonstrating that food insecurity impacts all kinds of people, and highlights volunteers and organizations from around the country who have stepped up to feed their communities.

The site also provides links to food support hotlines, state-by-state benefit guides, and information for specific communities, such as seniors, families and children, and military families. You can also find information about how you can donate food, time and money to support those in need.
