About Mobile Pantries…

MCHPP recognizes that a number of barriers can hinder clients from accessing our regular Food Pantry. Our Food Mobiles are designed to fill that gap, by bringing the food closer to home, and serving clients through a no-questions-asked distribution style.

The Growth of Mobile Pantries

Originally piloted out of a partnership with Good Shepherd Food Bank, Mobile Pantries have become a valuable way for MCHPP to reach more clients in the community, by reducing barriers and increasing access to services. In 2016 we began offering a monthly Mobile Pantry in Harpswell, and have been regularly serving 60-80 households through that event each month. In June of 2019 we expanded this service to include a site at Lisbon High School in Lisbon Falls.
