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.
Your organization or business can help by sponsoring a Mobile Food Pantry, where you’ll distribute food to the hungry 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 access to emergency food. Each Mobile Food Pantry provides 5,000-10,000 lbs. of fresh produce and non-perishable food items, enough for about 200 families to receive enough food for 20-40 meals. When available, the Mobile Food Pantry will also distribute other 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 area. At-risk counties tend to have very few pantries ad low accessibility to food, as well as much less fresh and nutritional food available in the area. 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
The Mobile Food Pantry Program operates with the support of businesses, churches, organizations and individuals who sponsor and organize distribution events.Together, we strategically identify “at-risk” areas and develop a plan to meet that need. Our $2,000 Mobile Food Pantry Sponsorship Package provides a fun and meaningful experience for any group, and includes transportation to the Mobile Food Pantry Distribution Site, volunteer t-shirts, and other great deliverables.
