Montgomery County Food Bank Mobile Markets

By  | 

The economic impact of COVID-19 has spiked the need for hunger relief into levels not seen before. Many families in our community are already struggling without food and there are a growing number of elderly, children, and adults who need help during this crisis. Montgomery County Food Bank is working together with partner agencies to fight against hunger by distributing food and resources to those in need by hosting Mobile Markets throughout Montgomery County.

Mobile Markets are temporary drive thru distribution centers where pre-packaged bags of groceries will be provided to Montgomery County residents in need, while supplies last. Residents can drive up to the Mobile Market, stay in their car, and MCFB’s partner agencies and trained volunteers will load the groceries safely into their car.

Dates, times, locations and partners involved at Mobile Markets scheduled. More dates coming soon!

The Montgomery County Food Bank is mobilized, as a second responder, to serve the community with the highest safety standards in food handling and distribution. MCFB works with over 50 partner agencies in Montgomery County to distribute food to clients. With their network and relationships, they are able to provide the most cost-effective way for agencies to access the greatest variety of nutritional food and necessities in volume.

HOW CAN YOU HELP?

The best way to safely help your neighbors in need is to join the community wide Montgomery County Food Bank Virtual Food Drive at www.mcfoodbank.org.

At the Montgomery County Food Bank, every $1 donated provides 5 meals.

If you would like to volunteer, please visit the Montgomery County Food Bank website as they have screening measures in place.

To ensure the highest safety standards, the MCFB is not encouraging community food drives at this time.
