Mobile Pantry set Saturday in Palisade
PALISADE, Neb. — The Mobile Pantry truck from the Food Bank for the Heartland in Omaha plans a stop Saturday, July 13, in downtown Palisade.
Shoppers can come by between 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. CT (notice the earlier time), and bring their own bags and boxes, and wagons or carts to carry it all.
The handicapped and elderly are encouraged to bring some "muscle" to help with the boxes.
Boxes are not available on site, and, due to liability and manpower issues, there is no delivery service.
There is no charge to shop. No identification or income verification are required, although shoppers must be Nebraska residents.
Each household may shop for itself and only one other, not numerous households.
Mobile Pantry events across Nebraska are sponsored by the Food Bank for the Heartland in Omaha.
The Palisade event is sponsored locally by the Hitchcock County Pantry in Culbertson.
The Food Bank's state-wide Mobile Pantry program is designed to provide food where there is great need and limited resources.
