    Choice Visual Library

    The Choice Visual Library is a collection of visual examples of choice distribution models submitted by Network Food Banks and their partners. This resource was created to support network members working to increase the amount of Choice offered to families with children.
    All network food banks were invited to participate in the Choice Visual Library and 16 food banks selected 38 sites (partner agencies, school pantries, mobile distributions, and/or food bank-operated sites) to participate in the library. Participating sites received a stipend to compensate neighbors, site staff, and/or volunteers for their time in capturing the footage and organizing the materials needed to create the library. 
    Each site submitted videos on four topics: a virtual site tour, neighbor intake, a site staff/volunteer/neighbor interview, and another topic of their choice. The videos are organized by the type of site, then by the level of Choice offered at that site. The size of the site (small, medium, large) is listed beside the site’s name.

    Rural Mobile Pantry Learning Summary

    Mobile pantries are as diverse as the communities they serve, and no two rural areas are the same. Still, dimensions of services such as physical access, stigma, awareness and individual experience are shared concerns. This guide provides lessons learned around five themes: racial equity and equitable access, partnerships, operations, preferred foods, and evaluation.
