The Anne Arundel County Food Bank is excited to celebrate the launch of its Mobile Food Pantry. The custom 2021 Ford F-59 Step Van will give the food bank the ability to deliver fresh produce, frozen lean meats, and shelf-stable foods directly to the communities where transportation and shopping choices are limited.
The mobile food pantry holds approximately 3,000 pounds of food and basic necessities, allowing us to serve about 100 households with each visit. Six racks store shelf-stable items and a refrigerator and freezer contain perishable and frozen items.
- The launch celebration will take place at the AACFB facility at 120 Marbury Drive in Crownsville. Our facility is located on the former campus of the Crownsville State Hospital, future home of the Crownsville Hospital Memorial Park.
- Please arrive between 10:45 am and 11:15 am and follow instructions from the AAACERT volunteers who will be directing traffic.
- Our program will start promptly at 11:30 am. The mobile food pantry will need to be on the road no later than 12:10 pm.
- September is Hunger Action Month. Show your support of AACFB’s mission to alleviate food insecurity by wearing orange.
