Do you need assistance?
If you need food, the Wichita Falls Area Food Bank is here to help. We will assist you in locating the nearest food pantry or other source of emergency food in your area. Use our Agency Locator to get started. Referral help is also available 24/7 by dialing 211.

2-1-1 First Call for Help
Dial 2-1-1 for free, bilingual information and referrals for food assistance and other health and human services. 2-1-1 serves as the number to call to link you with services provided by nonprofit organizations and government agencies in your community.
If dialing 2-1-1 directly doesn't work on your phone, you can reach us at our toll-free number 877-541-7905. To better serve you, you will be asked for a ZIP code for the area you are seeking services. Here are a few reasons why you may need to reach us this way: You use video phone relay, IP relay, Captioned phone relay or TTY relay. Just use your relay option of choice to place the call. You do not live in Texas, but are calling about services available to Texans. You have to dial through a PBX system that isn't programmed to handle dialing 2-1-1 but does handle toll-free dialing. You live near the border of Texas, and your cell phone reaches a cell phone tower in a neighboring state. Your cell phone or VoIP service doesn't reach 2-1-1 directly.
