For neighbors who live in remote West Marin County, healthy food is not only expensive, it is literally out of reach. To meet this need, the Food Bank started a mobile pantry to connect isolated, low-income residents of West Marin County with fresh groceries.
Every other week, our pantry on wheels travels over 100 miles to distribute fresh groceries to families in West Marin. We bring not only nutritious groceries – like eggs, chicken, rice, pasta and lots of fresh produce – we also help reduce isolation by connecting with those who live on the most remote ranches of West Marin.
During the pandemic, we have expanded the service to reach more families sheltering in place.
Our mobile pantry travels 113 miles each trip
to distribute groceries at 12 different locations
The mobile pantry serves 25-30 families
weekly in West Marin
The closest store is so far away, and it costs a lot just to get there. It’s amazing that the Food Bank comes all the way out to West Marin to deliver really healthy food to my family.
