Ozarks Food Harvest, the largest food bank in Southwest Missouri, unveiled its second mobile food pantry Thursday. KSMU's Katie Easley reports.
The organization serves 29 counties and feeds over 50,000 people in Southwest Missouri each month.
Bart Brown, the executive director for Ozarks Food Harvest, says the idea for a mobile food pantry started in 2007.
Brown says the concept is to deliver the food directly from the truck so that you don't need a physical location.
The new mobile food pantry is refrigerated and will allow the food bank to distribute over three times as much food per day as before.
The Rotary Clubs of Springfield and Nixa came together to help fund this project. The new mobile food pantry was on display at the Oasis convention center.
