Harvest Regional Food Bank will distribute the food boxes directly from their truck on Wednesday, October 27, 2021 from 9 to 11 a.m. or until all boxes have been distributed.

The truck will be parked at the 102 E. Main St., Waldo, AR (Fire Department). The next mobile pantry for Columbia County residents will be on January 5, 2022.

With CDC precautions and recommendations against the Coronavirus still in place, Harvest is taking every measure to ensure the safety of its staff, volunteers and recipients. Mobile pantries our now operating as "drive-thru" distributions, with food boxes being loaded directly into vehicles.

Recipients will not be allowed to exit the vehicle or park to pick up food.
