MOBILE FOOD PANTRY
In March, 2016 we launched Forever Fed’s Mobile Food Pantry. This pantry travels via our box truck to impoverished neighborhoods. Food is offloaded and families “Self Select” groceries from our mobile shelves stocked with donated and purchased foods. When families select the foods they wish to eat there is significantly less waste. As a result, we are all better stewards of our food resources.
Beginning January, 2017 Mobile Food Pantries became our primary interface with the general public. We host mobile pantries at various locations every week. Families struggling to provide for their families are permitted to visit our pantries twice each month. We disburse an average of 40-70 pounds of food per family at these pantries. By disbursing smaller quantities of groceries, several times each month, we are afforded an opportunity to interact and encourage families in need more frequently. Our pantries are joyful events and a great occasion for smiles, hugs, and laughter. Our model of making smaller but consistent investments in the families we serve continues to be a win-win for everyone involved.
Forever Fed distributes boxes of food to families unable to visit food pantries for grocery support. These families are typically part of the working class poor lacking transportation or they hold multiple jobs supporting their families. Holding multiple jobs often means they are unable to visit food pantries during food pantry hours. A few of the individuals receiving food support are disabled adults and senior citizens. Several of these folks are on special diets and in poor health. Our fantastic army of volunteer drivers deliver food bi-weekly to their homes, and the families receiving food also receive words of encouragement and compassion.
Mobile Clothes Closet
Our Mobile Clothes Closet travels to several locations every month in conjunction with our mobile food pantries. Forever Fed’s 14-foot trailer is filled with racks of gently used clothing, shoes, and blankets. Clothing is off loaded and guests peruse our offerings and select their items at will. Each family is given one large shopping bag to carry home their selections. Certain seasons warrant additional blessings. During the fall we also distribute hundreds of coats and blankets. Children’s clothing is always in high need. To donate clothing please contact Tammy@ForeverFed.org
Sack Meal Support
Forever Fed partners with other organizations who are already serving and mentoring groups of children we are seeking to reach and support. Volunteers prepare these meals at our base of operations.
- We provide meals in the form of sack dinners each Tuesday to Kid’s Bible Club in Woodstock. KBC mentors and teaches 100-150 at risk children each week. Most of these children live in food unstable homes.
- We provide the Hidden Falls neighborhood with sack lunches during she mid-year school breaks in Cherokee County. Volunteers assemble and distribute 125 meals each day to a community they mentor while the children are out of school in February, April, September, Thanksgiving week, and Christmas Break.
