The Mobile Pantry has been in existence since 2001. The Portage County Mobile Pantry is a non-profit community outreach program that consists of a Coordinator, Marcy Ferriter, and eight volunteers, and is located at Beloved Community Church. The Coordinator can be found sorting, checking dates, and shelving food as items are delivered. The second and fourth Thursday of each month, Ms. Ferriter, and the volunteers package grocery and sort through day old produce that is donated by a local grocery store. Mobile Pantry helps as many as 40-50 people per month. We are careful not to duplicate existing efforts, but rather to reach those who are in need. The recipients of the Mobile Pantry in Portage County we deliver to are typically elderly and low income, who may have a medical condition, be disabled, and do not have extended families to rely on. We deliver to the outlying areas of Portage County. The recipients may have no means of transportation and no money for gas, or unreliable transportation
The Mobile Pantry continues its successful efforts of delivering food to rural areas. Currently the Mobile Pantry delivers to these outlying areas: Junction City, Rosholt, Amherst, Amherst Junction, and Almond-Bancroft.
Deliveries are made on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays of the month
