From the Farm

Fresh produce represents the highest volume, lowest cost, and most nutritious potential food source for fighting hunger. It is among the items most frequently requested by our member programs and moves quickly out of our distribution center. Through the Farm to Pantry program, Mobile School Pantry can develop reliable local food channels to help feed Broward's hungry while supporting local food growers and producers.

We accept nutritious products that are:

  • Excess
  • Nearly overripe
  • Misshapen
  • Unsalable
  • Distressed
  • Processed
  • Blemished
  • Short-coded

 

Gleaning & Dedicated Planting

Mobile School Pantry can provide supervised volunteer groups with materials for gleaning of fields and orchards both mid-season and aftercommercial harvest. Plant an extra row or two in your crop fields or vegetable gardens dedicated to feeding your neighbors!

Mobile School Pantry provides a bottom line business solution offering:

  • Product pickup
  • Receipts for potential tax deductions
  • Reduction of costs associated with storage, transport and disposal of edible produce
  • Waste minimization and assistance with sustainability
