Become a Partner Agency

Why Should You Partner with the Northeast Iowa Food Bank?

The NEIFB provides agencies with a great resource of healthy and nutritious food at a lower cost than buying food direct from the grocery store.  We are equipped to bring in large donations and store it for you until you are ready to order it from our warehouse.

Besides food, the NEIFB offers various resources on how to grow your volunteer base to how to increase your marketing presence in your community.  The NEIFB has over 200 member agencies that you can connect with and gain valuable information and networking opportunities.
