How We Nourish Our Community

How we distribute food

  • Soup kitchens offer prepared meals.
  • Food pantries allow clients to select an assortment of food, providing a variety of nutritious items, including shelf-stable food, protein, and fresh produce.
  • Mobile food distributions help us expand our reach.

Mobile food distribution

The Food Depository’s Producemobiles are farmer’s markets on wheels that deliver fresh fruit and vegetables to low-income areas each weekday. The Producemobiles visit convenient community locations every month, including partner agencies, neighborhoods and other community sites.

The Mobile Pantry brings food to communities that have a high concentration of need but relatively low levels of pantry assistance. The program aims to serve working people by delivering food on nights and weekends—when food assistance typically is not available.

We also have programs that serve meals and food to children, older adults and veterans.
