Kroger’s Atlanta Division is donating $50,000 to support mobile food pantries, including Athens’ Food Bank of Northeast Georgia.
Mobile pantries are supported by local food banks and serve as food pantries on wheels to bring essential food items to underserved areas.
Some citizens with the greatest need are hindered from receiving assistance because they live in locations where either too few or no food pantries are available. They may also lack transportation to travel to an existing food pantry for support.
Mobile pantries, however, allow agencies to travel directly to assist those in need.
