Mobile Food Pantry

Our Mobile Food Pantry at East is open on Thursdays from 3:30-4:30pm in the back parking lot near the field house entrance. Each household gets approximately 25 lbs of shelf-stable food, 10-20 lbs of dairy/produce, a gallon of milk, and 10 lbs of frozen meat in prepared boxes/bags. You will be asked to (pop) open your trunk or unlock it so we can load food directly into your trunk. If your trunk does not work or if food must go in the back seat of your vehicle, please pull your vehicle just beyond the pickup area and a volunteer will place the food beside your vehicle for you to load after the volunteer has walked away. We must follow social distancing at all times. We are unable to serve families before 3:30pm. We will close the pickup if we run out of food before the end of the pickup period and we will order more food to be delivered the next week. Please contact our School Social Worker, Sara Lennertz, with any questions.
