Drive-through mobile pantry in Sebastian Monday

NEWS RELEASE

Treasure Coast Food Bank will hold a drive-through Mobile Pantry for people needing emergency food assistance on Monday, June 29, 2020 at Sebastian River High School, located at 9001 Shark Boulevard.

It takes place from  10 a.m. to noon or until the products run out.  There will be fresh produce, dairy, frozen meats, and pantry staples available. No registration is required.

To maintain social distancing and ensure the safety of volunteers and recipients, everyone is encouraged to arrive by car and stay in their vehicles. Volunteers will load food directly into car trunks.

Anyone who is sick is asked to stay home and have someone else pick up food items on their behalf.  Because of the increased need throughout the community, Treasure Coast Food Bank asks that people be prepared for long lines and extended wait times.

The need for food remains high as many people have lost jobs or income because of COVID-19, said Judith Cruz, President and CEO of Treasure Coast Food Bank.

“Our Mobile Pantry distributions are one of many steps we’re taking every day to ensure that we’re meeting the needs of everyone affected by COVID-19, and we’ll continue to meet those needs throughout this long-term recovery.”
