The Food Bank of Iowa is a charitable, not-for-profit organization committed to our mission of alleviating hunger through food distribution, partnership and education.
From the time the dock doors opened in 1982, we have maintained our No. 1 priority – maximizing “food in – food out” to meet the critical needs of a diverse population through our network of partner agencies in 55 Iowa counties.
As a non-profit food bank, our primary role is to provide food to the charitable agencies offering direct service to hungry Iowans.
These partner agencies include:
Along with traditional food banking, the Food Bank of Iowa also operates four successful programs: the BackPack Program™, HUSH, Fresh Produce Program and Mobile Pantries.
- Food pantries
- Soup kitchens
- Homeless shelters
- Shelters for victims of domestic violence
- Nonprofit day care centers
