A Mobile Food Pantry is designed to distribute a 10-15,000 pound truckload of nutritious product directly to the disadvantaged residents in a neighborhood chosen by the sponsoring agency. One Mobile Pantry will generously assist 150-200 families with 65-100 pounds of product each. The growth of this program is of the utmost importance as our Mobile Pantries are becoming a primary means of expanding our outreach into historically "underserved areas.”
