      Hi Tammy, while Boone County is part of our service area, it is one of the counties we share with Mountaineer Food Bank. Since we share it with them, we split which programs each Food Bank is responsible for, so we do not operate our Mobile Distributions there, but they do! If you have questions or concerns about the Mobile Distribution program, please feel free to reach out to them. Their number is: 304-364-5518.

      Michelle, we do not currently have the Greenup Fairgrounds on our upcoming schedule. We are dedicated to making sure that everyone, in all parts of each of the counties we serve have access to our programs; we will continue to serve Greenup County, but will be cycling through different locations to best serve everyone. To find out where we will be having our Mobile Distributions each month, please visit the Get Help section of our webpage and scroll down to the Calendar!
