What We Do
Mobile Food Pantries
The Mobile Food Pantry is one of Community Cooperative’s most innovative and effective ways to bring much needed food, specifically fresh produce, into areas that have been deemed food deserts. A food desert is an area in which a majority of the residents have limited access to large retail stores with fresh food and grocery products. The residents in these neighborhoods live below the federal poverty level, as determined by the United States Government. Through our Mobile Food Pantries, individuals and families are able to access fresh fruits, vegetables, dairy, and bread that are so vital to maintaining a proper diet, as well as access to other services such as housing, employment, and wellness checks.
Full intake and registration will start again at all June mobile food pantries. Households are limited to ONE mobile food pantry per month and ID will be required.
COVID-19 Vaccine Distribution in September 2021:
Throughout the month of September, Community Cooperative will be working with community partners to offer FREE COVID-19 vaccines at select mobile food pantry locations. Our September mobile pantry schedule indicates which dates and locations will have the vaccines available.
*Note: The vaccines available at our mobile pantries are Moderna or Johnson & Johnson and are for individuals 18 years and older, EXCEPT the September 8th mobile at Hector Cafferata Elementary which will have the Pfizer vaccine for students ages 12-17.
