Mobile food pantry gives boost to local families

LANSING, Mich (WLNS) – Each month the Greater Lansing Mobile Food Pantry helps out hundreds of families across mid-Michigan.

This weekend the food pantry was out-and-about at the Plymouth Congregational Church in Lansing.

More than 500 families filled baskets with fresh fruit, meats and cereals at no cost to them.

In addition to that more than a hundred elderly and disabled families got fresh food delivered to them.

For one Lansing family the mobile food pantry is essential in helping them eat.

“They’re always here with big open arms open to you know just letting us know that they love us and that they are always there for us through this service, so I thank God for these services because it’s much needed,” said Bobbie Hardy.

Dr. Damon Davis, who volunteers at the Food Pantry, explains “although the economy is taking a rebound sometimes that doesn’t filter down to the most vulnerable, and so it’s important that we don’t forget about the most vulnerable people that rely on this.”

The city drives around the mobile food pantry on the third Saturday of every month. The next date is April 16th.
