The Northern Illinoid Food Bank is bringing its Mobile Food Pantry to Friday.
According to the NIFB, the Mobile Pantry is a “traveling food pantry” that delivers nutritious food directly to people in need of food assistance. Working with local community groups or partner agencies, this specially designed NIFB truck delivers meat, produce, nonperishable food and other products to low-income people in communities where hunger needs surpass the capacity of existing food pantry resources.
The NIFB Mobile Pantry enables partner food pantries to offer large amounts of food to their clients without being restricted by inadequate storage, especially refrigerated storage for meat and other frozen food. Furthermore, the Mobile Pantry visits other sites that are easily accessible to needy people, including schools, community resource centers and housing units in low-income neighborhoods.
The Mobile Pantry will be in from 4 to 6 p.m. Friday, Feb. 10, in the parking lot of .
Anyone is welcome. The Mobile Pantry can serve up to 300 families.
