Purchase Plus Program

Purchase Plus is here!

You spoke, and we listened! After talking with our partner agencies about products they regularly need but we do not always have, the Food Bank of Iowa has come up with a solution.

Purchase Plus, which will have preferred food items available for ordering on a consistent basis with NO LIMITS on quantity! These items will be available for ordering at the case cost plus a small fee. Through our bidding process and the ability to obtain full truckload pricing, we will be able to provide these products at a lower cost than our partner agencies are currently paying at local grocers

Items available:

  • Canned fruit
  • Cereal
  • Peanut Butter
  • Tuna


The case cost will become a part of a revolving fund that will allow the food bank to purchase these items available on a regular basis. These items will not replace regular inventory but supplement and help ensure that we always have them on hand. We will continue our efforts to secure donated products.

If you have any questions or suggestions on items you would like us to source, please contact Laura Sheriff at 515-564-0330.
