The Food Bank of Iowa has opened a Food Pantry onsite! We need your help to serve community members and better understand the 500+ partner agencies that we serve. This choice pantry will offer food items to families in our neighborhood and an opportunity to serve the 1 in 8 Iowans currently in need.

Spend Tuesday evenings making a big impact!

Role: Assist community members shopping in the food pantry, filling out profiles as a new shopper, and providing additional support such as bus schedules and brochures with information on other benefits.

Commitment: We can accept volunteers as they are available for one time opportunities! We do also have a huge need volunteers that are able to commit to a weekly shift and willing to cross train to assist clients from welcome to departure at the pantry.

Tuesdays: 3:30pm-7:30pm

Volunteers must be aged 16 or older to volunteer in the pantry. Please note that for some of the roles in the pantry we do need a volunteer to be willing to commit to a weekly shift for training. Training will occur before your first shift and a Food Bank of Iowa staff member will be onsite to assist with any questions for all pantry shifts.
