Food-A-Box Mobile Program

Feeding the hungry is one of our primary objectives. Sadly, however, many families in need are unable to attend a regular food shelf program due to lack of transportation and/or an inability to find daycare for their children.  Our Food-In-A-Box Mobile program offers a practical and innovative means for us to provide easy access to much-needed groceries and other important support services.

Each month, during a designated date and time, Good in the ‘Hood delivers groceries to a local partner site with the following objectives:

  • Offer easy access to essential groceries, basic resources, social engagement, support information and referrals in order to bring stability and much needed assistance for families in need.
  • Establish host partner sites with businesses, schools, civic and/or religious organizations that are interested in leveraging their key assets, including facility and staffing, for the greater good of the community. This enables Good in the ‘Hood to bring a sustainable and cost-effective program that enhances the relational equity between our client guests and our local hosting partner.
  • Provide our neighbors in need with a “client-choice” shopping model that places an emphasis upon healthy options such as protein, dairy and fresh produce
  • Offer opportunities for volunteerism, social engagement and program leadership. We believe this is the key in order to promote personal dignity and help to foster a “Doing With” approach for the community rather than “Doing For” perspective.

This pop-up style program is designed to bring a monthly drop/delivery of essential groceries to each of our Food-In-A-Box Mobile hosting partners.  It’s a quick, simple and efficient model that allows for set up, hosting of a client-choice shopping distribution and clean-up within a 4-hour window of time.
