August 2016 Mobile Food Pantry Schedule

Taking Our Show On The Road to Feed Those in Need

Fresh perishable items (dairy, grains, produce and protein) and dry goods are offered free of charge to northern Indiana residents. The Food Bank sets up tables at pre-scheduled locations where people can “shop” and select items that best meet their needs.

Mobile food pantries are first come, first served for those in need of food assistance, based on available product, while supplies last. Patrons are asked to bring bags or boxes to transport their items home.

If weather conditions are adverse or product is not available, there is a possibility that a mobile food pantry could be cancelled.

The Food Bank provides SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) Outreach at all mobile food pantries. The application process takes approximately 20 minutes. To begin the process, clients need to provide the following information: Names, dates of birth and Social Security numbers for all persons living in the household; total monthly income for the entire household; and total monthly expenses.
