The Farm Wagon mobile pantry delivers fresh produce, dairy, and sandwich bread to low-income rural and city neighborhoods where people may not have access to that quality of nutritious food. They can choose the food they want and enjoy it while it maintains high nutritional value.
Initiated in October 1999, the Farm Wagon visits sites in Adams, Allen, DeKalb, Huntington, LaGrange, Noble, Steuben, Wells, and Whitley counties. The Farm Wagon program distributes over 40,000 pounds of fresh produce and other perishables every week.
Here’s how the Farm Wagon works: a site agrees to host the mobile pantry and agrees on a delivery day and time. The site publicizes the delivery time. We stock the Farm Wagon with fresh food and drive it directly to the site. At the site’s designated time, the truck arrives and people select the foods of their choice.
