Mobile Food Pantry Comes to Rock Road Transit Center
Metro Transit is teaming up with St. Louis Area Foodbank to address food insecurity in the region. Over the next year, the St. Louis Area Foodbank will bring its Food on the Move mobile pantry to the Rock Road Transit Center on the third Monday of each month, beginning on Monday, April 19.
The mobile pantry will be available from 2:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. in the Park-Ride lot at the Rock Road Transit Center on these Mondays, allowing transit riders, area residents, and visitors to receive healthy food for themselves and their families, free of charge. The Rock Road Transit Center is located at 7001 St. Charles Rock Road.
The Food on the Move mobile pantry is equipped with three refrigerators and can provide fresh and shelf-stable food items. The pantry is accessible by both ramps and stairs. Health guidelines to help protect visitors from potential exposure to COVID-19 will be followed, including providing hand sanitizer, frequent cleanings, and monitoring social distancing.
