Food Bank of Iowa just earned a 2019 Platinum Seal by adding information to our Nonprofit Profile on GuideStar. By sharing these important metrics, we’re helping the sector move beyond simplistic financial ratios to assess nonprofit progress.

We chose to display quantitative information such as our programs, our impact and our financials to represent how hard Food Bank of Iowa is working toward achieving our mission of providing food for Iowa children, families and seniors to lead full and active lives, strengthening the communities where they live.

We’re proud to have earned a Platinum Seal to share our full and complete story with the world. To reach the highest level of transparency, we added extensive information to our Nonprofit Profile: basic information about our missions, programs, leadership, etc.; in-depth financial information; qualitative information about goals, strategies, and vision, and the progress we are making.
