Food Bank, CANR to offer second annual mobile pantry

July 7, 2011 under CANR News

The Food Bank of Delaware and University of Delaware’s College of Agriculture and Natural Resources (CANR) will hold the second annual Harvest to Home mobile pantry starting at 8 a.m., Tuesday, July 12.

Volunteers from UD and the Food Bank of Delaware will harvest vegetables from the University’s Garden for the Community, located in front of the Wilson Farmhouse directly behind the Girl Scouts facility on Route 896 in Newark.

The volunteers will load the vegetables from the Garden for the Community into a Food Bank of Delaware van, and the produce will then be transported to the Sparrow Run community off Route 40 in Bear for a mobile food pantry. The mobile pantry begins at 11 a.m., and prescreened individuals will receive fresh produce and 30-pound meal boxes of nonperishable foods.

The Garden for the Community project is a partnership between the Food Bank of Delaware and the CANR faculty and staff, undergraduate students and graduate students.
