The Mobile Food Pantry Is a Lifeline to Those in Need

The Mobile Food Pantry Is a Lifeline to Those in Need

“What’s great about our Mobile Food Pantry Program (MFP) is that it empowers us to bring much-needed, nutritious food directly to hard-hit communities,” explained Hilda Ayala, Director of Programs at the Food Bank. Since the beginning of the Coronavirus crisis, our MFP trucks, each loaded with tons of food, including fresh fruits, vegetables and meats, have been dispatched into the parking lots to offer much-needed food to children, seniors, as well as tens of thousands of laid-off employees and their families.

We altered our standard MFP model into a drive-through distribution to maintain the physical distance these times demand. For example, a visit to Hoover Elementary school near downtown Los Angeles was arranged with the Service Employees International Union to help meet the needs of students, staff and neighbors in this hard-hit community. The MFP also visited the Hospitality Training Academy in Los Angeles to offer food to thousands of laid-off workers in the restaurant, hospitality and leisure industries.

We are committed to mobilizing all the resources at our disposal to serve our hungry neighbors in LA County. That was true before the Coronavirus, it is true now, and it will be true when things return to normal. Thank you for helping us help those in need.
