During these trying times it is more and important than ever to be there for our loved ones and those in need. Food insecurity was already an issue and will be exacerbated by the current situation we are all facing. We encourage those that can, to give what they can to help out their fellow man. Any donations made to our team between now and March 31, 2020, will be matched dollar-for-dollar by Peterson Financial Group.

Food Bank of Iowa COVID-19 Relief

About This Campaign

The Situation

In light of the COVID-19 crisis, the world around us is changing daily. Unschooled children are not getting 2-3 meals provided daily at school. University students have been displaced. Low wage earners are losing precious hours which would have converted to food on the table. Able-bodied seniors are now home-bound. Small businesses and restaurants are shuttering operations. Day cares are closing.

The Solution

At Food Bank of Iowa, our top priority remains to ensure that our most vulnerable neighbors have safe access to the nutrition and resources they need. We are collaborating with schools, area agencies on aging,churches, and community partners to help feed people in-need. We are assembling Emergency Food Packs with approximately 20 pounds of shelf-stable items to make distribution for our partners easier, faster, and safer.

The Cost

Unfortunately, the solution does not come free. The costs for additional food, labor, freight, supplies, sanitation, and miles on the road will be very significant. The solution to ending COVID-19 crisis will be a marathon, not a sprint. Your monetary support will provide us with the endurance to get there. $1 will provide up to 4 meals to food insecure Iowans.

From the bottom of our hearts, thank you!
