Make a lasting impact by joining our Meal Makers monthly donation program. Your ongoing support of Food Bank of Iowa keeps our shelves stocked, our trucks on the road and food on the table for Iowans struggling with food insecurity.

Your Donation’s Impact

At Food Bank of Iowa, we stretch every dollar donated to provide meals for our neighbors facing hunger. A $20 donation will buy 40 pounds of food! Here are more ways monthly giving makes an impact:

  • $20/month: feeds one child through the BackPack Program™ for a year
  • $60/month: provides at least three meals a day, every day for a year
  • $75/month: helps cover deliveries to our 700 partner agencies
  • $84/month: inducts you into our Helping Hands Society

Our Helping Hands Society recognizes our most committed hunger fighters. These champions annually contribute $1,000 or more to support our vision of a hunger-free Iowa.
