Now open for in person visits!

We are excited to welcome our clients back to in-person shopping. We are open every weekday from 1-3 and on Thursdays from 5-7 p.m.

To reduce the number of people in the building at once, clients need to make an appointment to come do their shopping. Click here to make an appointment.

New clients are welcome any time. Just stop by our pantry when we are open to get registered, or give us a call to get you signed up.

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!

Volunteer

We have good volunteers and are always looking to grow our talent pool! Consider howyou can help with our important work!

Give

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. Gifts of food should be left in the donation boxes outside our facility. To arrange a large or commercial donation, email contact@decorahpantry.org

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 almost entirely volunteer-driven (there's more than 100 of us!) 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.
