Northeast Iowa Food Bank Makes a Difference!!

Jessica Herring, volunteer manager of Northeast Iowa Food Bank.
Vital food source services for those in need is found at our Northeast Iowa Food Bank.  Jessica Herring, the Volunteer Manager, did a great job representing the organization by explaining just a fraction of the myriad of the client services they provide to those in need.  

They provide nutritious food to 5,800 different people weekly through a far-reaching network of over 200 food pantries, soup kitchens, schools, churches and nonprofit groups.  They do this every day covering 16 counties and 200 member agency partners distribution system that all have to stay in sync with a common goal of providing food for 46,000 people including 14,000 kids in trouble! 

The Food Bank receives food from many entities including local farmers who donate a large surplus bounty of homegrown fruits and vegetables.  They supply vital food to Iowans in need of all age groups from the very young to the elderly.

Thank you for serving people in need. You are making a big difference in many peoples' lives.
