Mobile and Produce Distributions
We try to meet our clients where they are so that we can help them better their lives. That means taking our storefront pantries on the road to communities where families are suffering from food insecurity and hunger. Scroll down for more information.
In recent years, it became evident that countless southeast and central Ohio residents in need lacked transportation to get to a food pantry, and many who did often found that their pantry’s food supply was stretched to the limit. As a result, the LSS Mobile Food Pantry was launched in 2009 as part of a solution to that problem. Families are able to select items for well-balanced, nutritious meals via a mobile choice pantry and with their immediate food needs met, they are able to now focus on paying rent, utilities, medical bills or other expenses.
Given the high incidence of diabetes, high blood pressure and other health issues in families struggling to put food on the table, it is important to the LSS Food Pantries to provide healthy, nourishing food to neighbors who may have to regularly choose between paying the electric bill and buying groceries. Our mobile produce distributions bring fresh fruits and vegetables monthly to families in several Ohio counties who need them.
