Mobile Foodshare is a pantry-on-wheels that brings fresh produce and other food to our neighbors in need at community sites throughout Hartford and Tolland counties. The program increases access to healthy food and nutrition throughout the region serving an average of 16,000 visitors each month.

Partnering with community based organizations, including community centers, senior and low-income housing complexes, houses of worship, and human service providers, last year Mobile Foodshare distributed over 4 million pounds of food to 70 different locations.
