SEMO Food Bank Providing Holiday Mobile Food Distributions

Friday, November 5, 2021

SIKESTON, Mo. (Nov. 4, 2021) – Southeast Missouri Food Bank will hold special holiday mobile food distributions in each of its 16 counties in November and December.

These distributions will feature food families can use to make a traditional holiday meal with a menu including hams, scalloped or mashed potatoes, green beans, corn, stuffing, fruit and pie. Menus may vary based on available inventory.

“For many of us, food has a prominent place in our holiday celebrations with families,” said Joey Keys, chief executive office of the food bank. “But for people who are already struggling to put food on the table, a holiday meal may be beyond their means. We hope these special mobile pantries bring hope and joy to our hungry neighbors this holiday season.”

Holiday mobiles will be held in each county in the food bank’s service area in November and December. The schedule of all mobile pantries, including the holiday distributions, is available at Individuals may also sign up for text notifications of distributions in their county by texting the name of their county, followed by “co” with no spaces (i.e. scottco) to 51555.

Individuals are only allowed to receive food from mobile distributions in their county of residence and are asked to bring a photo ID or official piece of mail, like a utility bill, with their address for verification.
