Mountaineer Mobile Food Pantry makes its way to Mylan Park

MORGANTOWN — The third Saturday of each month, the Mountaineer Mobile Food Pantry makes its way somewhere in Monongalia County to distribute fresh food to those who might need it.
On Saturday, it pulled up in Mylan Park.
Roark Sizemore, the president of the Pantry Plus More Board, said volunteers distributed food to 180 individuals on Saturday, which will ultimately feed around 600 people.
“Something that we’re looking for now is other outdoor locations to do in different parts in the community,” Sizemore said.
Access is one of the things the program struggles with. He said for some people, getting to where the food is and getting it home can be difficult.
“We’re trying to brainstorm some different solutions for that, so if anyone in the community has anything for that, we’d love to hear from them,” he said.
He said what’s really cool about the mobile food pantry it offers fresh food which is not always available at pantries.
“Today we had chicken, we had potatoes, cabbage, eggplant, carrots, Oreos and pretzels,” he said.
