The Mobile Food Pantry from the Food Bank of Iowa will be in Estherville Thursday, Oct. 5 from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. in the empty storefront next to Shopko.

Members of the Iowa Lakes Community College women's basketball team will be helping other volunteers to load and help carry out food at the giveaway.

The pantry seeks volunteers. New volunteer information time is 3:30 p.m.

On pantry day, which takes place bimonthly in Estherville, the truck arrives between 1 and 1:30 p.m. with the food. Volunteers unload the truck with grocery carts and stock the pantry shelves.

Distribution takes place from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. Anyone in need of groceries is invited to the mobile food pantry. Organizers ask people to bring bags, laundry baskets, or boxes to carry the food.

Volunteers are also needed from 6-6:30 p.m. for cleanup, and to deliver leftover food to Upper Des Moines Opportunity's Emmet County Food Pantry.
