The Mobile Produce Distributions began in June 2016 in Raymondville when both the local Walmart & prison closed down, two of the major employers of their area, leaving many in the area without income our a source for fresh produce.

 Prior to the pandemic, our food bank worked diligently to serve small communities known as food deserts, but as a result of the pandemic, our distributions have grown in size and our reach in the community has greatly expanded to include more cities in additional to the rural areas that we previously served..  

Thanks to donations and funding, the Food Bank RGV is able to serve anywhere from 300 – 900 families per distribution.  Our commitment to move our community from hunger to health continues as we continue to provide fresh produce at our mobile distributions in addition to nutritious shelf stable foods and frozen protein.

As the fresh produce capital of Texas, you may see the following produce (depending on season) at our distributions:

  • Watermelon
  • Papaya
  •  Lemons
  • Limes
  •  Tomatoes
  • Aloe Vera
  • Oranges
  • Apples
  • Carrots
  • Bell Peppers
  • Potatoes
  • Tomatillo
  • Cabbage
  • Pineapple
  • Eggplant
  • Mango
  • Kale
  • Zucchini

There are no applications needed to participate in a mobile food distribution, simply bring ID and proof of address, wear a face covering, and have an empty car trunk. Distributions are first come, first served and while supplies last. 

Our team is continuing to serve communities across the RGV most in need, including food deserts. Please check our facebook page regularly for postings and updates.
