Mobile Free Pharmacy

Wake 10

The Mobile Free Pharmacy provides adults and children who are low-income and in need with free over the counter medicine. Medicine such as aspirin, children’s cough syrup, allergy medicine and vitamins are just a few items given to families who need assistance.

  1. Where does the medicine come from? Through a partnership with Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina, NC MedAssist receives bi-weekly shipments of over the counter medicine that is sorted by volunteers and disbursed to adults and families who are less fortunate.
  2. Is the medicine free? YES! No I.D. required at all events! (must be 18 years or older to receive medicine)
  3. How can families receive the medicine? From the OTC Store or scheduled health resource events, see dates below.

For more information on the Mobile Free Pharmacy, please contact Misty Moore.
