Each week Connecticut Foodshare Mobile Pantry distributes food in communities across the state. Many people who access mobile pantries may not be aware of other food assistance options. In a survey of nearly 2000 mobile guests in Hartford and Tolland counties, fewer than 600 had been to a food pantry and half said they knew others who were not able to make it to the mobile distribution. We invite you to visit these distributions to share information about the great work you are doing that can help neighbors in need.
Spring temperatures make it a great time to come out to a Mobile Pantry site and share information about your food resources. Bring information flyers about your program or set up an information table to help hungry people know about your great resources!
