Inflation, rising food costs and the ending of the emergency government SNAP benefits are driving nearly 500K neighbors per month to seek assistance from the Northern Illinois Food Bank pantries and programs. To help neighbors in Lake County, Northern Illinois Food Bank will be distributing free groceries to neighbors at a pop-up mobile market.

A mobile market is when a mobile food truck arrives on location for short period of time to distribute free food in communities. Local volunteers from throughout Lake County unload and distribute food to neighbors in a drive thru model. Mobile markets typically last 1-2 hours and provide individuals with common grocery items such as breads, cereals, meat, dairy and fresh produce. Items will vary depending on availability.
