Mobile Pantry Guidelines
 
 

The Mobile Pantry Outreach Program directly serves clients in areas where food is needed in an effort to supplement other hunger relief agencies in that area. The Mobile Pantry truck travels around North Central Indiana providing nutritious perishable and non-perishable food. The truck provides at least 6,500 lbs. of food to each location, which is enough for 140 families to receive 40-50 pounds of food. Each truckload typically includes a variety of products such as frozen meat, canned goods, produce, baked goods, and laundry soap.

The Mobile Pantry Program began in 2010 with just a few distributions. Immediately, the food bank realized the critical need for the program and the communities quickly embraced it. In 2011, Food Finders was selected as one of 10 food banks across the country to receive a new mobile pantry truck through a grant from Kraft Foods and Feeding America. Having a dedicated truck for the program greatly expanded the possibilities for Food Finders. Currently, the truck distributes food almost daily around Food Finders’ 16-county service area. This program has especially helped areas that have few resources.
