Minnesota Food Shelves Go Mobile To Fight Hunger

Food banks and relief groups in Minnesota are delivering food to rural and suburban communities as food insecurity rises across the state. Suburban poverty presents unique challenges because communities are spread out and lack public transportation as well as social services, underscoring the importance of mobile food deliveries. Food pantries have been overburdened since March as more and more people experience food insecurity for the first time. One group reported a drastic increase in the number of people served, with 68 percent using the pantry service for the very first time.
