Who We Are
FOOD For Lane County’s mission is to reduce hunger by engaging our community to create access to food. Our vision is to end hunger in Lane County. We do this through the lens of our values of Compassion, Inclusion and Collaboration.
The Mobile Pantry program focuses on serving marginalized communities and geographic areas with high need in an effort to supplement and promote other hunger-relief agencies. Through collaborations with partners and local communities the mobile pantry will work to increase food security through an equitable, sustainable, and accessible mobile pantry model while incubating self-sufficient local solutions to hunger.
What We Do
FFLC is in the process of purchasing a modified beverage truck that will allow us to roll into a parking lot, set out pop-up tents and tables, and begin distributions with people shopping directly from the truck.
While we build this out, the interim mobile pantry will operate out of a box truck. Caged rolling carts will be stocked with pantry staples and produce prior to heading to the distribution site. At the site they will be set up under pop-up tents to emulate a small market. Coolers stocked with frozen goods and perishables will be set up alongside the carts, and any extra items will be placed on fold out tables. Each distribution will require 4-5 volunteers to support this process.
