Feeding America Food Truck December Delivery

December 10, 2019

MANISTIQUE – The Schoolcraft Co.  Feeding America Mobile Food Truck will visit Manistique on Wednesday, December 18th from 10 a.m.-12 p.m.  This is the last food truck of the year until April 2020.  The location for pick up is Schoolcraft Memorial Hospital, 7870W US Highway 2, Manistique, MI.   Anyone residing in Schoolcraft County with an emergency food need may participate. If you are picking up a box for another family, please bring a signed note with their address and permission to issue the box to you. There are USDA slips that need to be signed for personal boxes and boxes being picked up for others.

The distribution is set up drive-through style. ALL CARS MUST ENTER ON SOUTHTOWN DRIVE – FOLLOW SIGNS. All vehicles will be directed to SMH EXITS after pick up.

Residents may also have a box of food delivered to their door, by calling Schoolcraft County Public Transit at 341-2111 at least 24 hours in advance.  Residents are reminded that the delivery list is limited and requests can be made up to 2 weeks in advance. The cost for delivery has been covered by a grant given by Schoolcraft Memorial Hospital.

Food insecurity affects 1 in 8 people in our region – an estimated 285,000 people. Children are particularly vulnerable with 1 in 7 at risk of hunger – approximately 80,000 total.   As of 2017, nationally, 52.4% of food insecure households had at least one adult family member working full time, another 10% working part-time, with 13.3% being retired and 15.1% not working because of a disability. Low-wage and part-time jobs – or even full-time jobs – often do not pay enough to keep a family out of poverty especially when they do not include health benefits. Locally, the 20,000 lbs trucks help feed 500 households in Schoolcraft County monthly.

If you, or your business is interested in sponsoring a food truck, please contact Sara Giles, SMH Marketing Director at 906-341-3293.   For more information about food assistance services in Schoolcraft County, contact Good Neighbor Services at 906-341- 3927.
