The Foodbank's Foodmobile distributes truck-loads of various food products such as fresh produce, breads, cereals, and assorted nutritional food items. The particular partner agency of the Foodbank which sponsors the Foodmobile distributes the food products to poverty eligible people in the service area. The agency set up tables, and volunteers unload the food products for distribution typically during a two-hour period. The partner agency pays approximately 4 cents per pound of food, or $200, for the truck load. Or, on occasion a donor - individual, church or organization - will gift specific funds to the Foodbank to sponsor the Foodmobile for a given service area. The Foodbank gratefully accepts gift support in the form of food and food products, property assets, planned gifts and cash donations, as well as gifts of community volunteer service.
