This resource will help you make a preliminary assessment to determine community need and organizational capacity for a mobile meals solution in your community.

Overview

Based on an assessment of community needs, organizational capacity, and financial feasibility, you may decide that a “traditional” meals program with fixed sites would serve the community equally well at lower cost. Alternatively, you may discover that while a mobile meals program would be more effective at reaching children with meals, your organization does not possess the capacity or resources to implement such a program. However, if a preliminary analysis reveals that a mobile meals program is both needed and feasible to implement, the next step is to design a plan to do so.
