Community Outreach Efforts
Food Distribution, Mobile Pantry
The Mobile Pantry provides fresh produce and other nutritious food directly to families and individuals in Orange County who struggle to make ends meet. The mobile pantry vehicle is a refrigerated beverage truck converted for use by Second Harvest. With each delivery the truck transports at least 5,000 pounds of fruit, vegetables and dry goods directly to the communities where low income individuals live.
Second Harvest partners with our church to distribute food directly to those in need. This partnership gives our guest the opportunity to select the food they need most, and organizations like ours avoid a number of issues caused from food storage, refrigeration and transportation. Supplying a crucial lifeline to the hungry in Orange County helps the surrounding community and prevents over a million pounds of produce from being destroyed while those in need face another day without food.
Our mobile pantry is consistently offered to the Huntington Beach community and surrounding areas on the Fourth (4th) Saturday of each month from 12:00pm – 2:30pm. Guests are encouraged to arrive by noon to sign in and reserve a place in line. We accept all walks of life and everyone is welcome, no one will leave with nothing. If you are struggling, need a helping hand, we are here to help with no questions asked.
You will be greeted by our staff with a smile, and respected completely throughout the process.
Volunteers are needed and encouraged to come out and help. If you would like more information on how to get involved please email email@example.com or call the church office.
