In August 2003, Second Harvest rolled out the Mobile Pantry Program. In partnership with a member agency, food from the Second Harvest warehouse is trucked to a neighborhood site at a prescheduled time for immediate distribution to residents. The program provides additional food to those in need and gives Second Harvest a valuable channel to increase distribution of perishable food items to ensure that good food will not go to waste. The Mobile Pantry increased its distribution 42% to over 1 million pounds of food last year and is serving hundreds of people with each scheduled visit.

If you are NEW to the Second Harvest Mobile Pantry, it is recommended that you come at 5:15 p.m. since we serve current clients for the Mobile Pantry first.
At the registration table you will be given further assistance on how to proceed each month to follow.
As a reminder, here are key points relating to the Mobile Food Pantry:
Those in need of some extra food for their family are welcome. You DO NOT need to be from Sun Prairie to attend the Mobile Food Pantry.
VERY IMPORTANT: Food received from the Mobile Pantry does NOT affect your ability to receive food through the Pantry once every 30 days.
Mobile Pantry customers will only be able to go through the line ONCE for your family or someone else's, but not both.
The type of food provided is based on what is available at Second Harvest at the time of the Mobile Food Pantry.
Smoking is strictly prohibited on Mobile Pantry grounds.
Please bring bags and boxes to carry your food.
