New mobile pantry providing essential supplies to Duval County families

The Hey, Mama Mobile Pantry is now making appearances in several areas of Jacksonville to provide baby supplies, self-care products, health and nutrition education, and other items to Duval County families.

Funded by the City of Jacksonville, the mobile pantry is a nine-passenger van equipped with diapers and wipes, formula, baby food, men’s and women’s toiletries and pregnancy tests. Many of these supplies were donated by the Jacksonville Women Lawyers Association and Nemours Children’s Health. A health educator and nursing students will be on board, as well as Northeast Florida Healthy Start Coalition (NEFHSC) staff members who will administer postpartum depression screenings and provide referrals for community resources including housing, rental assistance, well-baby care and stress management.
