Food pantry

A drive-through mobile food pantry rolled into Bowling Green on Thursday and attracted hundreds of residents by car, bike and foot. 

The pantry was sponsored by BGSU’s Center for Public Impact, Food for Thought in Toledo, United Way Wood County and First United Methodist. Cars lined up throughout the parking lot of First United Methodist and were backed up onto Wooster and Clough streets. 

Volunteers practiced social distancing by wearing gloves and having residents open their trunks to receive the free groceries. Items ranged from milk and bread to potatoes and bananas with options for several non-perishable goods.


If you drove through the food pantry and are unsure how to cook the items you received, try out the recipe below. This recipe only uses items given out at the food pantry and common pantry staples and can be made using just a pot, pan, knife and spoon.
