The River Bend Food Bank is opening two mobile food pantries Thursday morning for anyone in need of assistance.
Anyone in need of assistance is welcome to attend.
Martin Luther King Jr. Community Center Food Pantry
In partnership with the Martin Luther King Jr. Community Center and The Arc of the Quad Cities, distribution will be “farmers market-style with a variety of fresh and nonperishable food available,” a Facebook event says.
People are advised to arrive at the center around or after 9:30 a.m. for registration.
Distribution is set to begin at 10 a.m. and will run until noon or whenever all food is gone.
Attendees are encouraged to bring a laundry basket or bags to take items home.
SouthPark Mall Weekly Food Pantry
“The pantry is open for in-person, socially distanced ‘shopping’ to pick out the food you’d like for your family,” a Facebook event says. “The pantry offers a variety of fresh produce, dairy products, frozen meats and shelf-stable items.”
No qualifications are required, and attendees are asked to bring a photo ID.
Masks will be required in order to shop inside the pantry.
Not able to attend these events? A weekly food pantry is also open 2 to 6:30 p.m. Tuesdays at the same location inside the mall.
The River Bend Food Bank, Martin Luther King Jr. Community Center and The Arc of the Quad Cities thank all volunteers for making these events possible.
