Adopt a Pantries are a donor sponsored food distribution under the Mobile Pantry Program. Second Harvest’s Mobile Pantry Program serves low-income neighborhoods throughout Orange County each week by providing fresh produce and other nutritious food directly to families and individuals in Orange County who struggle to make ends meet. The need for these distributions is high and we encourage donors to consider adding to our delivery schedule by becoming a sponsor.
The Mobile Pantry Program, which includes Adopt a Pantry, distributes 2.5 million pounds of produce, shelf stable and other food items annually. With each delivery, the truck transports a minimum of 5,000 pounds of fruit, vegetables, and dry goods directly to low-income communities, providing food to more than 150 families.
Your $2,500 commitment will help Second Harvest cover the expense of acquiring and transporting thousands of pounds of fresh food and you and your team can be directly involved in bringing much-needed assistance to struggling families in cities across Orange County. Being a sponsor and providing onsite volunteers for the food distribution brings philanthropy full-circle by financially sponsoring the cost of the pantry, and seeing firsthand as volunteers the immediate impact of your generosity during a distribution.
