What is Food Insecurity

Food insecurity is defined as not always having enough food or access to healthy food options, which can lead to hunger. Families may become insecure at any time, and it is often not permanent, but can have lasting effects.

COVID-19 (Coronavirus)Temporary Changes in Our Operations

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Food Pantry has moved to a "drive-through" method of service.   All food is pre-packaged and safely handed out curb side.  Drive up to the main entrance, stay in your vehicle, and a volunteer will meet you at your window.  This includes regular monthly food pantry and "anytime" food.     Donations can also be dropped off in the drive-through.  

Important Update:
The Health Clinic will reopen
on August 10 by appointment only.
Call (515) 987-5523 to schedule.

To locate other resources please call the United Way hotline 2-1-1.
