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 1:30 to 3:30. We are also open Thursday evenings from 6:30-7:30 (at the same time as the Decorah Free Clinic). We are currently located at First Lutheran Church at 604 West Broadway Street in Decorah. Enter through the doors in the courtyard on Broadway.


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.
