NCAP's Mobile Food Pantry program is a travelling food pantry that delivers food free of charge directly to our communities.  The food is delivered in one day, generally within a couple of hours.  The Mobile Food Pantry is held once a month, rotating among Box Butte, Cherry, Dawes, and Sheridan counties.
