Harvest Brings Mobile Pantry to Lafayette County Nov. 17
Lewisville & Stamps, Arkansas, are gearing up because on Wednesday, November 17, the Harvest Regional Food Bank returns to Lafayette County with its TEFAP USDA mobile pantry.
“With the recent increase in hunger, it is more important than ever that Harvest meets the needs of our food insecure families wherever they are,” said Camille Coker Wrinkle, CEO / Managing Director. “Our goal is to continue to ensure that families have the food they need, even during this difficult time. “
When and where
The Harvest Regional Food Bank will distribute TEFAP USDA products directly from their truck on Wednesday, November 17, 2021 from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. or until all boxes have been distributed. The event will take place at the Lafayette County Fairgrounds located at 1360 Hwy 82 Lewisville, AR 71845.
The way to proceed
With CDC precautions and recommendations still in place, Harvest takes all measures to ensure the safety of its staff, volunteers and beneficiaries. Mobile pantries function as “drive-thru” distributions. The food boxes will be loaded directly into the vehicles by the volunteers. Recipients are not allowed to exit the vehicle or park to collect food. Just drive, stay in the line, and you’ll be charged.
Prove who you are
Recipients must bring photo ID or proof of address to verify they reside in Lafayette County. Distribution is limited to 1 box per household and a maximum of 2 households per vehicle.
The next Mobile Pantry for Lafayette Co is scheduled for January 12, 2022. This institution is an equal opportunity provider.
