Food Insecurity

It is estimated that 1 in 8 individuals living in our service area go to bed hungry.*

They simply don't have enough food to sustain themselves. You have the opportunity to help thousands in Northeast Iowa by donating money or time to the Northeast Iowa Food Bank.

It is estimated that at least 40,000 Northeast Iowa residents -  including nearly 16,000 children and almost 4,000 seniors -  receive emergency food assistance each year from the Northeast Iowa Food Bank and its member agencies.
For more statistics on hunger in Iowa, please contact The Northeast Iowa Food Bank at (319) 235-0507
