County Foundation issues Food Pantry Challenge.
Posted: Oct 24 2012 by ppowers

The Enhance Hamilton County Foundation is once again issuing a challenge to raise funds for the county's three food pantries. The summer drive was a complete success. It was so successful that an anonymous donor has contributed additional funds that need to be matched by local donations. The Lord's Cupboard in Jewell, the Stratford Food Pantry and Upper Des Moines Opportunity in Webster City all have food and personal care resources that are made available to families who are struggling to put food on the table. The summer challenge to bring in funds helped considerably according to the food pantry volunteers, but a need still remains in Hamilton County. According to an article in the Des Moines Register on October 22, food insecurity continues to rise in rural Iowa. Hamilton County residents are among thousands of individuals and families who struggle to put food on the table. Hamilton County's unemployment rate has improved but still remains higher than most of Iowa. According to one food pantry volunteer, food supply is diminishing in spite of spring food drives and summer donations. Hamilton County individuals and businesses are asked to make cash donations to the food pantry of their choice. You can write a check to the Enhance Hamilton County Foundation and mail it to P.O.Box 474, Webster City,Iowa 50595. Be sure to designate which food pantry the donation needs to be credited to. The foundation will see that all donations are given to the three food pantries.
