When she’s not working as a heavy equipment operator, Deb enjoys a full life of camping and spending time with her 11 grandsons ages 6 months to 16 years. 

But high prices have pushed her to the point where there’s not enough income to pay her bills and put food on the table. 

One visit to Cottage Pantry, one of our food pantry partners, was a game changer for Deb. Thanks to support from caring donors, she learned help is available in the form of nutritious food when she needs it. 

“Thank you. We should be thankful that people are doing this for the people who need it,” Deb says with a smile. 

Thank you for supporting Food Bank of Iowa today to take hunger off the table for families and individuals who are struggling this fall.
