At the Arlington Community Food Bank, we constantly seek innovative ways to ensure that every individual in our community has access to nutritious food. Our Mobile Market initiative is a testament to this commitment. This program is tailored to cater to community members who may find it challenging to visit our food bank. Through the Mobile Market, we take the food to them, ensuring that no one has to choose between keeping the lights on or feeding their children.
The Mobile Market operates on a bi-weekly schedule, making stops at various locations to distribute food. Here's how our schedule looks:

We couldn’t have launched this initiative without the collaborative effort of Arlington High School Students, the City of Arlington, SMARTCAP, and Pivotal Construction. Together, we purchased a refrigerated mobile food pantry, enabling us to improve our services to the community significantly.
We're also on the lookout for volunteers to drive and operate during mobile market hours. If you're interested in participating in our Mobile Market Volunteer Program, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
