Mobile Food Pantry

This specialized 36-foot beverage-style truck brings a "market on wheels" to underserved communities and has refrigeration and freezer units so that fresh, nutritious foods can be delivered directly to those who need it. In addition, we distributed fresh vegetables, harvested from our Food Growing Program and distributed by the Mobile Food Pantry.

  • Mobility: the Mobile Pantry allows us to serve food deserts - communities where residents do not have easy access buy fresh meat, dairy products, and vegetables.  It also enables us to help neighborhoods where no direct service agencies operate.
  • Flexibility: the Mobile Pantry schedule includes distributions in the late afternoon and on Saturdays, making it more convenient for working people to access fresh food.
  • Client Choice Distribution:  food is set up as a farmer’s market where people can walk through to select their own food. Adding to the dignity of this type of distribution is the high level of customer service provided by Peter Pozo, our Food Bank associate responsible for this program. This system reduces waste and increases efficiency.
  • Refrigeration: the specially customized vehicle allows us to provide healthy food options of fresh fruits, veggies, dairy product and meats directly to those in need of it and reducing the need for agencies to store it. Most local agencies do not have refrigeration capacity to accept large deliveries of perishable foods.
