FOOD PANTRY

Current Food Pantry Services

Our food pantry is, once again, open for client shopping inside during regular hours.  To address safety concerns and encourage social distancing, we have expanded our hours.  If you prefer to stay in your vehicle, call us at (515) 987-5523 and a volunteer will prepare a pre-packaged supply of food based on family size and deliver it to your vehicle. Please have your door or trunk open for the volunteer to safely load your food.

Food pantry services are available to all Dallas County residents in need of assistance.
