The mobile food pantry will allow FISH to meet people where they are to provide food for those who might have trouble accessing the downtown food pantry. It was funded entirely by local organizations and will begin operating later this month.

Late last year, FISH Vancouver Executive Director James Fitzgerald received an unexpected phone call from Ryan Hurley, president of Hurley Development.

“What kind of dreams do you have?” Hurley asked. “What does FISH want to be able to do in the future?”

Fitzgerald reflected. During the COVID-19 pandemic, FISH volunteers delivered food from the food pantry in downtown Vancouver to neighborhoods across Clark County, specifically to areas where people might have difficulty accessing transportation, or where there was great need for food assistance.
