• Food Bank of Iowa Mobile Pantry comes to Stanhope on March 15.
The Food Bank of Iowa has announced that the mobile food pantry program will be returning to Stanhope on Saturday,March 15 from 10 to 11:30 a.m. at the Stanhope Community Center located at 600 Main Street. Families are asked to bring boxes,bags or sacks to take their food home. It was originally thought the mobile pantries would end in December but the Food Bank of Iowa acquired funding to continue with at least this one additional mobile food pantry in Stanhope. It is uncertain as to whether future mobile pantries will be available in Hamilton County. The pantries offer an added strategy toward bridging the food assistance gap for rural counties in the Food Bank of Iowa's 55 county service area. The mobile pantry program has provided an additional access point for those in need to obtain food. These mobile pantries are a way to face hunger in rural Iowa and providing families with an opportunity to receive food that might otherwise be hard to access. Volunteers are needed to help with Saturday's Mobile Pantry. Many local volunteers and 4-H youth and their leaders have helped with previous mobile pantries. If you are willing to volunteer or would like to know more about the mobile pantry, please contact Rev. Suzie Moore at 515-826-3557 to volunteer.
