Channel One Regional Food Bank began the Mobile Food Pantry Program in 2009. Locations for Mobile Food Pantries are in communities with few, if any, food shelves, limited transportation, and high food insecurity rates. Channel One looks at food distribution in all 14 counties we serve and the Meals Per Person in Need we are able to supply, to determine gaps in support. In fiscal year 2018/2019, Channel One distributed 427,620 pounds of food through the Mobile Food Pantries.

mobile pantry volunteer

Since 2011, Channel One Regional Food Bank has supported Food from the Heart at Triumphant Life Church as a mobile food pantry. Channel One is very grateful and appreciates the volunteers who staffed the mobile pantry for nearly 10 years in all sorts of weather. Rice County volunteers are leaders in efforts to run food shelves and now run many programs.
