The Oneida Emergency Food Pantry is a unique service to the Oneida Nation. Voted by GTC in October 2016, the Pantry opened its doors January 2017 to service Community members in need of emergency food help. We have grown tremendously over the years and have serviced close to 1,000 families. If you are in need of any assistance we are here to help.


All Food Donations are accepted.  All fresh produce can be dropped directly off Pantry to be stored safely. For large pickups you can call directly at 869-6165 to schedule a pickup time. Community assistance with drop off of donations is appreciated. Yaw^ko!

How to Apply

Pantry applications are accepted anytime but, food will only be distributed on Tuesday and Thursday 11:00AM-2:00PM at the Pantry. True emergencies can be serviced Monday through Friday 8:00-4:30 depending on the extenuating circumstance. Please call ahead for such request.


Four items will be needed to complete application:

1. Oneida Nation Tribal ID

2. Circumstance, Emergency, or Reason your coming for food.

3. Last 30 days of income

The last two will not disqualify you from receiving services but proof of income will give you longer certification periods.
