Costco has been a generous donor for years in partnership with Food Bank of Iowa. In the last year, Costco has made an effort to donate across more categories of food and non-food product. Food Bank of Iowa has agencies that pick up retail food rescue at Costco multiple times a week. These agencies are doing great work in their communities and they are able to do it in part because of the generous donations they receive from Costco weekly. There are times Costco has larger items such as furniture and mattresses they donate as well. When our regular agencies are unable to take these items, we are able to connect other partners of Food Bank of Iowa with Costco so these generous donations go to great use. Just last week, Costco donated two mattresses and a mattress pad to an organization that helps pregnant young mothers with housing and parenting. Thank you, Costco, for being a great partner and helping our partner agencies do great work in their communities!
