A mobile pantry is a traveling food pantry that delivers food free of charge directly to people who need assistance for a one-day food distribution. The goal is to provide food where there is a high need but limited resources. Food Bank for the Heartland works with a nonprofit agency to schedule a mobile pantry and advertise it in the community.
During the 2013-2014 fiscal year, the Food Bank's Mobile Pantry program distributed 2,519,100 pounds of food to approximately 36,000 households in need in Nebraska and western Iowa.
