The Sidney Lions Food Bank "helps those in need through those who care." We do that in a variety of ways but primarily by providing food hampers designated to supplement a client's food needs.
The Sidney Lions Food Bank is an emergency food service and we are here to help you and your family in a time of need.

Registered Clients may visit the Sidney Lions Food Bank for a hamper a maximum of once a month. Our hampers are based on the size of the family/household. Only one registration and one hamper per family/household are provided.
We try to provide enough food for 7 to 10 days, but sometimes varies on supply and demand.
