Meals of Hope expands mobile food pantry outreach

NAPLES – Meals of Hope, the largest food pantry provider in Southwest Florida, will be able to help even more people in need of food assistance with the expansion of its weekly mobile food pantry outreach at a new location:

Farm Workers Village
1724 Elm Hammock Circle,
Thursdays from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m.

Anyone who needs assistance is welcome to choose from a varying selection of food offered at mobile pantries, including frozen meat, fresh produce and canned goods. Please bring an ID and bags to carry food. Volunteers should arrive at 2:30 p.m.

If you would like to help by donating food, sponsoring a meal packing event, or volunteering at a mobile pantry, please email for information. Volunteers need to arrive one hour before the mobile pantry distribution starts, stay the full three hours, and wear closed-toe shoes.

To help those in need, a new interactive map of Collier County Food Pantries can also be found at
