This program is intended for partnerships with organizations. If you are an individual in need of food assistance, please contact Delaware 2-1-1 by dialing 2-1-1 or visiting www.delaware211.org. You may also visit the Food Bank’s Healthy Pantry Centers in Newark or Milford. You may also click here for a list of upcoming public mobile food distributions.
The Food Bank’s Mobile Pantry brings both shelf-stable and fresh foods to low-income Delawareans. With the COVID-19 pandemic families are served either in a drive-up or socially-distanced style.
The truck comes filled with non-perishables, fresh produce, dairy, beverages and other refrigerated and frozen items, as well as personal products (when available). The truck visits community access points throughout the state, and volunteers help distribute food to families in need.
Community organizations are currently needed to host pantry distributions. For more information, please contact Dave Weddle, Mobile Pantry Coordinator, at (302) 444-8129 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

- If you are an organization who wants to partner on a mobile pantry, please contact Dave Weddle, Mobile Pantry Coordinator, at email@example.com or 302-444-8129, to select a date (please give us a couple for matching up our calendars) and location.
- Organizations pre-register members of the community. There must be a minimum of 50 people, however we can do much larger distributions if demand is there.
- Ensure the in-take forms are sent to Dave Weddle at firstname.lastname@example.org two weeks prior to the mobile pantry so we can develop our distribution sheet and plan the appropriate amount of product.
- Have a sufficient number of volunteers (we recommend 10 or more), based on the size distribution, to work the event that day with our team.
