Montgomery County Food Bank to host Mobile Markets to distribute Groceries
The economic impact of COVID-19 has spiked the need for hunger relief into levels not seen before. Many families in our community are already struggling without food and there are a growing number of elderly, children, and adults who need help during this crisis. Montgomery County Food Bank is working together with partner agencies to fight against hunger by distributing food and resources to those in need by hosting Mobile Markets throughout Montgomery County.
Mobile Markets are temporary drive thru distribution centers where pre-packaged bags of groceries will be provided to Montgomery County residents in need, while supplies last. Residents can drive up to the Mobile Market, stay in their car, and MCFB’s partner agencies and trained volunteers will load the groceries safely into their car. View dates, times, locations and partners involved at Mobile Markets scheduled for the upcoming week.
