Pop-Up Food Pantries are single-day, mobile food pantry distributions that are staffed almost entirely by volunteers. These distributions are designed to increase access to nutritious food to veterans who are struggling to make ends meet. Approximately 8,000 pounds of food including pantry staples, produce, bread and bakery items, will be shared with 100-150 veteran households. These distributions are open to any qualifying veteran.
These distributions are open to any veteran or currently connected military service member who meets the income eligibility guidelines below. Veterans must present proof of veteran status. Other area distributions and emergency food resources can be found by visiting the Foodbank’s website at www.eifoodbank.org and clicking “find help.”
