We have a regular schedule of faith groups who are responsible for most evening meals each month, which takes care of many of our food needs. Some items (breakfast cereal, coffee, sugar, margarine, snack foods, etc.) are much appreciated. If you would like to make a food donation or would like to volunteer to make a meal, please call 515-232-8075.
Please note, we cannot accept donations of food that are expired or beyond their Sell By, Best By, Use By, or any other utilization date.
At this time, we are unable to accept donations of any clothing items due having reached our maximum capacity of clothing. If you have clothing items to donate, please feel free to contact one of our partner agencies that could also use these items.
