Mobile Food Initiative

The Mobile Food Initiative, one of Kalamazoo Loaves & Fishes most recent programs, is already making an impact for many in this community.

The goal of this program is to get additional supplies of grocery assistance into the hands of people who need it within Kalamazoo County. Food is distributed on a first come first served basis. As with most other Kalamazoo Loaves & Fishes’ programs, there are no eligibility requirements or paperwork to fill out. Food is free to local residents.

As a partnership with the Food Bank of South Central Michigan, the MFI distributes various perishable and non-perishable food items, including fresh fruits and vegetables, at specific sites throughout the county. Specific food items vary among dates and locations based on the availability of USDA product.
This is a year-round program that distributes food at seven different sites each month, including:

  • Saint Andrew Community Church
  • Vicksburg United Methodist Church
  • Kalamazoo Community Church
  • The Salvation Army
  • Douglass Community Association
  • Haven Church
