Every month, I'm proud to get behind the wheel of our Mobile Food Pantry and provide food for our community. It gives me a unique perspective on the challenges people face in putting food on their table.
Our partner agencies’ budgets are tight, yet the need to feed more people is growing. In an effort to better meet the needs of low-income families in our 29 county service area, ACFB began an exciting initiative called the Mobile Food Pantry program. Each time the Food Bank hosts a Mobile Pantry, we deliver 7,000 to 10,000 pounds of food to a pre-designated ACFB partner agency. That’s enough food to feed 200 households. The food is distributed the same day as it is delivered.
