Second Harvest Foodbank’s mobile food pantry will deliver a great selection of food at 212 Main St. in Gays Mills on Wednesday, April 24.
Gather between 1 and 1:15 p.m., and then at 1:30 p.m., Cindy will begin the registration process. On average, each household will receive about 60 pounds of diverse food products, including meats, fresh and preserved produce, canned goods and breads.
Per Second Harvest Foodbank’s regulations, smoking in line outside is strictly prohibited.
Patrons do not need to meet income guidelines; but, they will be asked to initial a sheet indicating the number of people in the household, including children, adults (18-59) and seniors (60-plus), as well as the name of their local post office. Food pantry organizers are still in need of people to share their experience with Second Harvest, so please consider talking with Lorraine or JoAnn and tell your story. First-time patrons will be asked how they learned about the mobile food pantry.
Please bring sturdy bags, boxes or baskets to hold the food received, since a limited number of boxes are available on site. Volunteers will assist by moving food to vehicles as needed.
In March, the pantry welcomed 147 households, from 18 communities in the Driftless area. Those families represented 327 people, 108 of them seniors and 78 children.
