Right now, Neighbors In Need has a few spaces available for new Mobile Food clients.

Mobile Food is a supplementary program for those who are unable to visit us during our regular distribution days due to disability, age or illness. We deliver a box of roughly 25lbs of food to your house once every 2 weeks.

There are a few requirements to become a Mobile Food Client. These are as follows:

  • Applicant is a resident of Mount Vernon
  • Applicant is unable to access local food bank due to:
    • Documented disability which prevents the individual or member of the household from accessing food bank services

Or two or more of the following circumstances apply to the applicant:

  • Lacks available transportation (public or private)
  • Experiences extreme hardship using public transportation, and/or other extenuating circumstances
  • Does not reside within walking distance from a mass transit system (½ mile)
  • Does not reside within walking distance from a food bank (½ mile)

If you, or someone you know, fulfills these requirements and are interested in becoming a client, there are plenty of ways you can apply!

You can either go to our downloads page and download the appropriate forms and either mail or email them back to us, or you can contact us either by using the contact page, Facebook or phone and leave a message and we will do what we can to get you into our system!
