Volunteers fill up the trunk of a family in need with food during its mobile food drive Saturday at Spring Hill High School.

The Well Outreach food pantry will be holding a mobile food drive this Saturday, Aug. 21 at Spring Hill High School, and is inviting those in need and would-be volunteers to the regular event.

Volunteers are asked to arrive at Spring Hill High School by 7 a.m., with those in need being served at 8 a.m.

The latest food drive comes during a time of unprecedented demand in food, with The Well having seen an increase of roughly 30% during the first week of August when compared to the previous week.

Proof of residency or other supporting documents are never required at The Well’s mobile food pantries. Anyone in need is welcome, with volunteers for the food drive in great need. Those interested in volunteering can sign up by clicking here.

The Well staff and volunteers will be handing out 20,000 lbs. of food to those in need. In order to adhere to safety recommendations amid the COVID-19 pandemic, those in need will be asked to stay in their vehicles, with volunteers delivering food directly to families’ trunks or back seats.

Having celebrated its 15th anniversary earlier this year, The Well has seen monthly demand increase as much as 130% since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.
