Several of the rural areas in The Food Bank’s service area do not have access to a brick-and-mortar building to supply food. The Mobile Pantry is a way to fill the void. A large truck filled with food stops in these areas to distribute food to families in need.
The Mobile Pantry brings food to six locations and more than 3,400 people. In 2010, the Mobile Pantry distributed 993,642 pounds of food.
