Mobile Food Pantry
Our Mobile Food Pantry is just like it sounds – a Food Pantry on Wheels! Each Mobile Pantry delivers up to 10,000 lbs. of food directly to people in need.
You and your friends or coworkers can join us in the fight against hunger by sponsoring a Mobile Food Pantry. As a sponsor, you’ll help distribute food in a hands-on, life changing experience.

More about this program
Every weekend, Golden Harvest sends 2-6 Mobile Food Pantry trucks to rural areas that do not have adequate emergency food. Each Mobile Food Pantry relies on the help of sponsors, volunteers and partner agencies to do a one-time mass food distribution to the hungry. Mobile Food Pantries provide around 5,000-10,000 lbs. of fresh produce and non-perishable food items–enough for around 200 families to receive free food for 20-40 meals. When available, the Mobile Food Pantry will also distribute non-food essentials like diapers and cleaning products. Witnessing hundreds of people arriving to receive help at these distributions shows how great the need is and how important Mobile Food Pantries are for the community.
The Counties We Serve
Mobile Food Pantries serve counties designated as “at-risk”, meaning the amount of food distributed by agencies or programs is not enough to meet the need for emergency food in that county. At-risk counties tend to have very few pantries ad low accessibility to food, much less fresh and nutritional food. Our vision for the Mobile Food Pantry Program is to close this risk gap and create sustainable access to food for all 30 of the counties we serve throughout Georgia and South Carolina.
How you can Help
Golden Harvest partners with local businesses, churches, clubs and individuals to sponsor and organize our Mobile Food Pantry distributions. We strategically identify “at-risk” counties and develop a plan to meet that need. Our Mobile Food Pantry Sponsorship Package is $2,000 and provides a fun, team-building, and meaningful experience for any group. The sponsorship includes transportation for your team to the Mobile Food Pantry Distribution Site, volunteer t-shirts, and other great deliverables – check out our Sponsorship Form for more information by clicking on the “Sponsor” button above!
