Southeast Missouri Food Bank works with partners, such as businesses, churches and civic organizations, to hold mobile food distributions in communities throughout our service area. During these distributions, we take a truck filled with various food items to a location where volunteers distribute the food.
People needing food assistance should visit a mobile food pantry in the community or county where they live. Please bring a photo ID and a piece of mail that establishes proof of residence, such as a utility bill. We also suggest bringing a box or laundry basket to carry the food received during a mobile distribution. Groups wishing to host a Mobile Food Pantry may contact us at 573-471-1818.
Most pantry and mobile distributions are being held as drive-throughs. Please have a space cleared in your trunk or back seat for volunteers to place a prepacked box of food. These distributions are limited to one box per household.
Providing families with food, the most basic human need, helps them hold jobs, excel at school and become better citizens. Your donation to Southeast Missouri Food Bank helps our most vulnerable neighbors; $1 can help provide 4 meals.
