Great Plains Food Bank Hosts Mobile Food Pantry in Fargo

They had at least ten pallets of food ready to serve with some visitors lining up more than an hour early

FARGO, ND — A pop-up store is giving away fresh meats, fruits and veggies to people in need here in the metro.

It’s the first time the Great Plains Food Bank’s perishable mobile food pantry showed up in Fargo.

This “pop-up” usually goes to rural areas but stopped in Moorhead in late August.

They had at least 10 pallets of food ready to serve with some visitors lining up more than an hour early.

Volunteers say anyone is welcome to take food from the mobile pantry, no questions asked.

“There is a need in the community no matter what,” said Cathy Herbold, who is with the Great Plains Food Bank. “There are hungry people, we just don’t always see them. The people in the community know that there is a place to go without judgement.”

The mobile food pantry’s next stop is tomorrow in Valley City.

Another stop is set for Cooperstown on October 26th.
