We are here for you

Get food

If you're in need of food for any reason at all and you live in Iowa, you are welcome to come. We know that coming to the pantry can be overwhelming or intimidating, especially for first-timers. But you should know you will be gladly welcomed, you will be treated with dignity and care, and our volunteers feel privileged to help you.

We are open most weekdays from 12:30 to 2:30. We are also open Thursday evenings from 5:00-7:00. We are located at 110 Railroad Street in Decorah.


You'll need to provide a little information: name, identification, address, and number of people living with you. No other information is needed. 

We are closed when Decorah schools are closed for weather-related reasons. We are also closed for some major holidays. Please see below for more information. 

During the Coronavirus epidemic, we are always open for drive-up and walk-up customers. You do not need an appointment to shop the pantry. But we strongly encourage returning clients to take advantage of our online store. See instructions.
