HORATIO — Harvest Regional Food Bank is returning to Sevier County with its Mobile Pantry. “We have several communities in our rural service area that are not fully served by local partner agencies. To be sure that the residents in these areas are served, we are providing direct service where needed.” said Camille Coker Wrinkle, Executive Director of Harvest Regional Food Bank.
Harvest Regional Food Bank will distribute pantry boxes and USDA commodities from Horatio First United Methodist Church, located at 304 S. Pennock St. on Wednesday, Feb. 20, from 10 a.m. until noon.
Volunteers are needed to help load boxes into cars. If you can volunteer, call Harvest Regional Food Bank at 870-774-1398.
Recipients must bring photo identification verifying their age and residence in Sevier County. Distribution is limited to one per household. USDA commodities will be available for those who meet income requirements and do not receive commodities at another location. Please note, the day of mobile pantry will be on a Wednesday.
Food boxes will include an assortment of canned fruits and vegetables, rice, pasta, fruit juices, spices, and other items. Harvest Regional Food Bank began the Mobile Pantry Program in 2011 with Pike and Lafayette Counties. Howard and Colombia Counties were added in 2014.
