Trucks with fresh vegetables, bakery items and boxed goods will be in Edgeley, Litchville and Wimbledon on Tuesday, Aug. 20, as another installment of the Great Plains Food Bank Mobile Food Pantry. Individuals in need of food assistance are welcome to collect food at no cost.

The Mobile Food Pantry will be in Edgeley at the Armory from 9:30 to 10 a.m., in Litchville at Litchville-Marion Elementary School from 12:30 to 1 p.m., and in Wimbledon at Saint Boniface Church from 3 to 3:30 p.m.

“Many of our clients live in rural areas and we understand the importance of making fresh and nutritious food readily available,” said Anna Johnson, who serves as regional service manager for the Great Plains Food Bank for eastern North Dakota. “Our Mobile Food Pantry and Pop-up Perishable Food Program bring trucks full of food directly into these communities and gives them a convenient opportunity to get the food they need. One in nine in North Dakota struggle with not enough food to eat each day and these programs provide them a convenient option.”

The Mobile Food Pantry and Perishable Food Distribution are two programs of the Great Plains Food Bank and bring fresh food and produce to rural communities struggling with accessing food assistance. The programs combine to distribute over 800,000 pounds of food at more than 40 locations across North Dakota and Clay County, Minnesota.
