The Second Harvest Food Bank Mobile Pantry is literally a food pantry on wheels, setting up shop at least six times a month to distribute groceries so no one goes hungry. Last year, Second Harvest Food Bank provided over 627,500 pounds of food in Logan County, equating to more than half a million meals!
Your United Way gift helps make the distributions possible, as a $35,000 allocation this year combines with in-kind food donations totalling more than $100,000 for the Mobile Pantry.
CAPTION: Bobbi Allen, Pastor of Buckeye Gospel Barn, and Debrah Riefstahl of Quincy have been volunteering with the Second Harvest Food Bank Mobile Pantry distributions for almost a decade. Allen was influential in bringing them to the DeGraff and Quincy areas in 2010 and now organizes two a month in addition to her congregation’s own pantry. “I found out about the food trucks and it inspired me to help as many people as we can,” said Allen.
