Anchorage East Rotary members and volunteers have hosted a Mobile Food Pantry distribution at the Fairview Rec Center in Anchorage, Alaska. Our clients who come to receive food each month are mostly in vehicles and food is able to be loaded into the client vehicles. We do seem 10 to 15 clients each month who are on foot, exposed to the elements and limited to what food they are able to receive based on their physical ability to carry the food. The proposed grant will provide funds for the following:
1. Purchase carts that on foot clients can use to transport food back to their homes and be re-used each month.
2. Purchase re-usable containers/bags for holding the food during transportation.
3. Purchase a pop-up tent to shelter clients from the elements. Tent will be branded with appropriate Rotary logo.
4. Purchase additional signage to direct clients to the distribution site
