Cedar Valley Food Pantry
The Cedar Valley Food Pantry (CVFP) exists to provide food and grocery products to households in Black Hawk County. Coming to the CVFP enables households to stretch their money further and use the savings to provide other necessities that would otherwise not be available.
There are people in our community that have to ask the hard questions when their income does not go as far as they would hope. They have to ask the hard questions like, “What is more important this month? Food for my two kids or paying the hot water bill?”
These are questions that some people in our community wrestle with every month. By coming to the Cedar Valley Food Pantry, we hope to take away some of those questions because their food bill for the week is taken care of by coming to the pantry.
In fiscal year 2017, the Cedar Valley Food Pantry served approximately 2,700 households each month.
