The mobile food pantry program was introduced in 2007 in the Southern Tier of New York and covers nearly 4,000 predominately rural miles. The converted beverage truck delivers fresh produce, dairy products and other grocery items to individuals and families in need.

According to the 2010 Census, 15.72% the population serviced by the mobile pantry live at or below the federal poverty level.
