Mobile Food Pantry – Perishable “Food Drops”

Mobile Food Pantry

The Mobile Food Program distributes thousands of pounds to convenient locations throughout our service area.  The MFP is essentially a “food pantry on wheels” that helps bring the Food Bank’s resources to remote underserved areas and helps to by-pass many of the storage and transportation limitations of our member agencies.  This allows agencies to hand out large amounts of food in several hours and provides a great way for agencies to reach more people in need in their community.   With Perishable Food Drops, the truck is loaded with a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables and other perishable food items for large-scale distribution.  For more information, contact Michelle Held at mheld@foodbankofeastalabama.com.
