The Mobile Pantry Program expands Gleaners’ capacity to distribute food by removing barriers that prevent access to underserved areas. Designed as a food pantry on wheels, the Mobile Pantry works to fulfill the needs of families and individuals that fall outside the reach of other agencies in the area. A truckload of food is distributed to clients through a farmer’s market-style distribution where clients choose to take what they need. A typical Mobile Pantry distribution provides enough food for 150 to 300 households. Download the Program Overview

Many companies and organizations find value in sponsoring a mobile pantry distribution or site. Contact Debbie Dreiband, Director of Corporate Partnerships, to find out how your company and employees can engage with this and other programs.
Many of our distributions are coordinated through partner agencies who provide volunteers to help serve during the allotted time. Our mobile pantries are not equipped to make home deliveries.
