Help for the hungry hits the road in Belvidere. The Mobile Food Pantry, hosted by the Community Cupboard, delivered nutritious food to people in need.
The group helps many students families throughout the school year, but organizers say having a mobile pantry allows them to expand their services to others in need. Thursday was the first time the Mobile Food Pantry's been out in a couple years. And organizers say it was a success.
"It's a great opportunity to reach out to the entire community and to put more food on the tables of our students and their families during the summer months when the kids are home so there are more meals that are being made at home," said Shannon Hansen.
Roughly 200 people benefited from the Mobile Food Pantry.
