The Wingnut Anarchist Collective has been organizing a monthly Mobile Food Pantry with the Central Virginia Food Bank for almost 3 years now, where we get food to around 200 households in Southern Barton Heights. It is an act of solidarity that we can do, which only takes 3-5 hours a month to do and organize, which has a tangible benefit to members of this community.
For April we served 167 households, (14 of which were deliveries we did to folks who are elderly/disabled/or stuck at work).
out of those households we had 197 Adults, 78 Seniors, and 174 Children. So over 400 people in our community got a little extra food in April.
We do the Mobile Food Pantry on the 2nd Saturday of each month at 1pm in the parking lot at the corner of North Ave. and West Graham. Volunteers help us set it up at 12 noon.
Folks who are on our distribution list are guaranteed food, we also serve food to walkups who aren’t on our voucher list as long as there is food to go round.
