Haven Ministries adds mobile food pantry in northern QA's

Haven Ministries’ new Food Truck Pantry will serve northern Queen Anne’s County in Sudlersville on Tuesdays and Fridays, by appointment only.

SUDLERSVILLE — Haven Ministries is operating a new Mobile Food Pantry Truck to help residents in northern Queen Anne’s County go and “shop” for needed food items.

According to a news release, the “store on wheels” will be parked at Faith Bible Church at 407 Dudley Corner Road in Sudlersville every week on Tuesdays and Fridays, offering a selection of non-cooked food items for area residents.

“Having a vehicle outfitted with shelves, so it is essentially a store on wheels, enables us to provide consistency, efficiency and more dignity in the process of food distribution. It offers individuals greater food options and minimizes food waste. The truck will also enable us to move into any part of the community experiencing a disaster to respond to essential needs,” said Krista Pettit, executive director of Haven Ministries.

The Haven Ministries Food Pantry Truck will be at the Faith Bible Church from noon to 7 p.m. Tuesdays and 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Fridays.

The Food Pantry Truck is open by appointment only and the hours are subject to change depending on the appointment times.

Scheduling helps ensure the health and safety of volunteers, staff and clients, the release states.

Appointments can be made by calling 410-827-7194. Residents are asked to bring a photo ID to participate.

Anyone wishing to volunteer for the Food Pantry Truck should call Gail Lundberg at 410-443-7696 or email gail@haven-ministries.com.
