Mobile Food Pantry Program

Mobile Food Pantries--A Great Way to Get Involved

What are they?  Our Mobile Food Pantry Program takes food directly to over 30 community sites each month, including schools, community centers, churches, senior apartment complexes, and our local VA Medical Center.  We bring USDA/TEFAP commodities, shelf-stable goods, and fresh produce to families, seniors, and veterans so that they will have food to sustain them when their resources are low.

How can you help?   We need individuals, civic and church groups, and businesses to provide 3-4 volunteer hours at pantry sites to help set up the event, register attendees, distribute food items, assist attendees with transporting food items to their vehicles or residence (on site), and clean up afterwards.

What is involved? Our distributions are held each month on a recurring monthly schedule. A Foodbank representative is on site to supervise and coordinate the event.  Whether you’re interested in supporting a mobile food pantry once, quarterly, or wish to make a long-term commitment, we’re able to work with you.

What Will You Gain?  You will see first-hand the faces of our neighbors in need that we assist, representing all walks of life and all ages.  Many people don't realize how blessed they are to be able to stop grocery store at any time and purchase food.   You are making a difference in our community and helping the Foodbank.

What is the next step?  Sign up using the link below, select your preferred date and location. Directions and contact information for the MFPP site you select will be sent to you a few days before the event. 

Please contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Maria Quigley, at or call (757) 596-7188 if you have any questions.
