COMSTOCK PARK, Mich. — Feeding America West Michigan is using mobile pantries to give food to those unemployed due to the coronavirus outbreak.

Anyone affected by the temporary closure of restaurants, bars and non-essential public gathering places should attend, according to the nonprofit today.

The mobile pantries will continue "until these neighbors are able to go back to work."

Food will be distributed in a drive-thru format. Attendees should place containers in their trunks for about 50 pounds of food.

Each mobile pantry will provide more than 6,000 meals.

“We want to ensure those affected by these closures have the food they need to feed their families,” said Kenneth Estelle, president and CEO, Feeding America West Michigan.

“We’re doing everything we can to make life easier for our neighbors during this difficult time.”
