Pantry on the Go and our Mobile Markets bring food directly to the communities in need.
Introduced in 2010, the Mobile Market was encouraged by the local legislators to help ensure healthy and nutrious food was being distributed into the community. While hunger exists in both urban and rural areas, urban residents are particularly disadvantaged.
Many urban communities can be described as “food deserts” where residents must drive more than 10 miles to the nearest supermarket or food pantry.
Urban communities also tend to have a large population of seniors who are more likely to live in poverty and require greater access to services.
Our Mobile Markets and Pantry on the Go travel throughout northwest Indiana helping serve the food insecure all over the region.
If you know of someone that needs are assistance, please let them know about these programs.
