The Homebound/Mobile Food Program was designed to meet the needs of our elderly and disabled neighbors who cannot leave their home in order to pick up food at our pantry. For the Homebound boxes of food are delivered by volunteers twice a month to the homes of those who have been referred to the program.  A person can be referred -- even temporarily after a surgery or illness -- to the program by another helping agency that works with this people group. We partner with Meals on Wheels, Adult Protective Services, Department on Aging and Disabilities, home health agencies and more.

The Mobile Food Pantry is working in partnership with area churches to identify those who would qualify for the program in remote areas of Brown County who are often underserved due to lack of transportation, health issues. or economic hardships. 

If you would like more information about the Homebound/Mobile Food Program or if you belong to an organization that works with this population and have a question about referral, please call 325-643-2273 or 325-203-2489.

Following is a sample menu for someone on the Homebound Program:

  • Box of Cereal
  • Shelf-stable milk
  • Oatmeal
  • Canned tuna or chicken
  • Canned beans
  • Canned vegetables
  • Canned soup
  • Juice
  • Crackers
  • Peanut butter
  • Soft granola bars
  • Ensure or Glucerna, as available
  • Fresh fruits and vegetables, as available

It costs around $35 per box to provide nourishment to this vulnerable people group. As with all of our hunger ministries, this program would cease to exist without the generous support from our community. You can help by donating monetarily to the project and through volunteerism. As the program grows and more people are added, we need people who are willing to deliver these boxes twice a month to the homes of those who have been referred. Please take action now to support this incredible program!
