Elk Grove Food Bank Services realizes that not all of our hungry neighbors have access to food assistance due to time restraints, living situations, and lack of transportation. In realizing these unique needs, the Mobile Pantry program was launched in May 2009.
Currently the program serves migrant farm workers, approximately 200 individuals (35 families), on the second Friday of each month in the south Franklin area. The Mobile Pantry brings a much needed service to an area that has a high concentration of poverty and receives relatively low levels of food assistance.
- The Mobile Pantry program is part of an ongoing effort to distribute more food to those in need who live in outlying areas.
- Mobile Pantry currently operates on the second Friday of each month.
- Volunteers transport food and clothing to the rural Franklin area for distribution.
