We have moved!

We are now operating in our new location at 110 Railroad Street!

Our hours will change very slightly: We are now open from 12:30 - 2:30 p.m. on Monday through Friday. The waiting area will not be open until noon, so DO NOT come earlier than that. 

Our Thursday evening hours are unchanged - 6:30-7:30 p.m. Do NOT come before 6 p.m.

Again, we are so grateful to First Lutheran Church for getting us going and for being our home for so many years! 

Get Food

Anyone who lives in Iowa can come to the pantry for food each week during our open hours. We know visiting a food pantry for the first time can be intimidating, but it's simple! We'll need your name, an identification, address, and the number of people who live with you. That's it!


We always need help. If you want to help your neighbors and can staff our open hours, stock shelves, help with deliveries, pick up donations, or help in other ways, please click below! Spanish-speaking volunteers are especially needed.


Our donors make this whole thing possible. We can buy food very affordably with your gift of money, but your gifts of food and fresh produce also make a big difference. Due to health regulations, we can't accept donations of home-prepared food.

who we are

We are a faith-based, non-profit charity organization serving thousands and thousands of clients who need food and other basic essentials. We are entirely volunteer-driven (there's more than 100!) and operate with extremely low overhead. When you support our organization, you should feel good knowing that your generosity means your neighbors in need have access to good nutrition.
