In Idaho, many parts of the state are rural and communities may not have a brick and mortar pantry for emergency food distribution. Mobile Pantry enables The Idaho Foodbank to take large quantities of emergency food to hard-to-reach and underserved communities. Our trucks transport the food and then community volunteers help unload and distribute the food to those in need. This system enables people living in these parts of our state to receive the nutritious and wholesome food they need to relieve hunger and stay healthy.
The Mobile Pantry Program distributes dry and frozen food to underserved, usually rural, communities. This program helps populations that do not have access to, or have difficulty accessing, food assistance.
