Weippe Mobile

Food Pantry

The Weippe mobile food pantry provides food to those in need each month on the fourth Tuesday of the month. This project is hosted by White Pine Rebekah Lodge members, spouses and friends. The food is provided by the Idaho Food Bank out of Lewiston. We are here to provide food to those folks on the hill whether it is Pierce, Headquarters, Fraser or Weippe.

Due to Covid-19 the food pantry is handled as a drive through. Patrons drive up and the food is loaded into their vehicles so there is little to no personal exposure. The food is distributed based on individual households. So, if there are a number of family members living in the same household (parents, kid and grandkids) they are given just one set of boxes.

As part of the Idaho Food Bank, we are now distributing an additional food box purchased by the Temporary Emergency Food Assistance Program. Recipients of the food must meet an income level set by the Federal Government. All other Idaho Food Bank items are provided to all with no income level requirement.

Because we are a drive thru we begin distribution of the food once it has been offloaded. The truck generally arrives around 9 a.m. and we are distributing food as early as 9:30 a.m. and we will stay and hand out food until 11 a.m. unless we run out earlier. We are there to reach out and help our friends and neighbor in our local community. The next food distribution will be Feb. 23.

A HUGE shout out to Darv Nelson and Loren Bolen who always make sure we are always plowed out at the Pierce Community Center before we open, especially on Fridays when we are open all day long. You both go above and beyond for not only the community center, but our community as a whole. Thank you!!!
