Somewhere in Iowa, a single mother makes calculations in her head, planning how long she can stretch what’s in her pantry and feed her children. Somewhere in Iowa, a senior citizen faces a lose-lose choice between paying for health care and groceries. Somewhere in Iowa, a child waits eagerly for lunch, knowing that the school meal may be the only food he gets today.

At the Food Bank of Iowa, we’re dedicated to ending hunger in Iowa—for each one of the 175,000 food-insecure people that we serve. With your help, we can.
