Upcoming Events This Month

January 1st: Resolve to be more generous!

As we enter 2020, many people make their New Year’s resolutions. This year we encourage you to be more generous! Consider how much you donated, volunteered, or collected food in 2019, and challenge yourself to do even more!

All January: H&R Block Tax Time

Doing your taxes? Well H&R Block can help! And best of all, if you go to the office in North Liberty and mention the Pantry, they will donate $20 as part of their referral program!

January 13th: Open Volunteer Time

Each 2nd and 4th Monday from 3:30 – 6PM we have Open Volunteer Time! There is something to do for all ages and abilities. Come in with your family or organization and get a taste of the volunteer life without the commitment.

January 13th-16th: Veggie RX Screening

This year we introduce a special new program after receiving funding from MidWestOne Bank. Veggie RX! This program will ‘prescribe’ fresh produce to those with chronic illnesses including diabetes, certain types of cancer, and other medical conditions a healthy diet can treat. Participants will also be set up with doctors who will check in on their progress. This week participants will be signed up for the program.

January 15th: Volunteer Appreciation Dinner

Each year we hold a free banquet dinner to honor our over 200 volunteers! Volunteers who contributed 50, 100, 200, 500, and 1000 hours of lifetime volunteer time are each given a special award. This year we have one special volunteer who will receive a 5,000 Hour lifetime award! In addition to this, four “Spirit of the Pantry” awards will be given based on staff nomination.
