Mobile Pantry Distribution

The Food Bank of Eastern Michigan and its Partner Agencies are providing food to neighborhoods by the truckload.

Featuring an average of 13,000 – 15,000 pounds of supplemental food, the Mobile Food Pantry allows agencies the ability to target areas of great need- even though they may not be physically located in that area.

Only current partner agencies may host a mobile pantry distribution.  For information on becoming a partner agency, please contact Agency Relations at (810) 239-4441.

The Mobile Pantry averages 10-12 deliveries a week throughout the Food Bank’s 22 county
service area.

How to Organize a Mobile Food Pantry

  • Find a location for distribution. This may be the parking lot of your agency, a school, or other easily accessible location within the community.
  • Make sure you have permission first!
  • Schedule a day and time for delivery with the Food Bank.
  • Announce the time of distribution to your clients and others in the neighborhood who are in need.
  • On the day of distribution, have volunteers on-site to help distribute food and record who received it.
  • After the food is distributed, dispose of all trash and return pallets and unused boxes to trailer bays.

Product is delivered either in a straight truck or a semi trailer to the agency’s site of choice, depending on the size and scope of services to be provided that day. With a straight truck, between 8 and 12 pallets of product will be delivered, while a semi would deliver between 16 and 22 pallets of supplemental food. Food would be off-loaded at the site for agency distribution.
