Palm Beach County Food Finder Map
The Palm Beach County Food Finder was created in response to COVID-19 in order to connect individuals seeking food resources to sites near them in a quick and accessible way.
FREE Food Resources
Right now, the best way for many of our food partners to respond to the increased need is to continue with mass distributions of “raw goods” that can provide multiple meals. With many unemployed, the goal is to preserve gas and resources so that when people do come to distributions, they’re getting the largest amount of food possible.
Mental Health Resources
A comprehensive list of resources for anyone seeking information about and/or help for a range of mental health issues.
The Department of Elder Affairs (DOEA) maintains this Resource Directory as an informational service to help elders, their families, and caregivers. COVID-19 responses vary based on location. The best step for finding information on your community is to contact your local Aging and Disability Resource Center (ADRC).
