|Truck to the Table - Mobile Food Pantry
Folk er, We Can Fight Hunger.
Many Southeast Missourians are suddenly finding themselves unable to provide for their family due to loss of a job, a medical situation arises or some other life changing event occurs. Truck to the Table Mobile Food Pantry was created to be there for these families and others facing hunger by providing emergency food assistance. Food distributions typically last 3 hours and can be held on parking lots or at churches, community centers and other such places. Each distribution can serve up to 300 families, providing not only frozen, boxed and canned food, but fresh produce, bakery, dairy and meats. Truck to the Table held its first distribution in November 2009 and in 2013 the program served over 32,000 families.
A Community Partnership.
We partner with individuals, civic groups, and non-profit organizations in our sixteen county service area. Partners provide volunteers and a site for distribution, and they help spread the word about upcoming distributions. These partners promote each distribution through all media outlets. The client or the sponsoring organization will be responsible for supplying bags and/or boxes.
Become a Distribution Site.

Southeast Missouri Food Bank’s Mobile Pantry Coordinator will prepare the truck, deliver the food, and assist volunteers with set-up and distribution. A mobile food pantry can be hosted virtually anywhere. For safety reasons, Mobile distributions must take place on pavement with no overhead hanging wires. Southeast Missouri Food Bank will provide all tables used during distribution.
