Food Distribution, Mobile Pantry

The Mobile Pantry provides fresh produce and other nutritious food directly to families and individuals in Orange County who struggle to make ends meet or have an unexpected need. The mobile pantry vehicle is a refrigerated beverage truck converted for use by Second Harvest. With each delivery the truck transports at least 5,000 pounds of fruit, vegetables and dry goods directly to the communities where low income individuals live. Supplying a crucial lifeline to the hungry in Orange County helps the surrounding community and prevents over a million pounds of produce from being destroyed while those in need face another day without food.

Second Harvest partners with our church to distribute food directly to those in our community. This partnership gives our guests the opportunity to select the food they need most, and organizations like ours avoid a number of issues caused from food storage, refrigeration and transportation. You will be greeted by our staff with a smile, and respected completely throughout the process. There are no restrictions on age, income but we do ask parents to volunteer along with their children.

Our mobile pantry is consistently offered to the Huntington Beach community and surrounding areas on the Fourth (4th) Saturday of each month beginning at 12:30 PM. Guests are encouraged to sign in and reserve a place in line after 11:30 AM. We accept all walks of life and everyone is welcome, no one will leave with an empty bag or sad heart. If you are struggling, need a helping hand, or just want to give back to your community, we provide the opportunity with our monthly food distribution.

Volunteers are needed and encouraged to come out and help. If you would like more information on how to get involved please email Lee Selby or call the the church office during business hours @ (714) 536-3537.
