FOOD. Your family may receive a 4-day supply of free and fresh emergency food once every month from a MovetheFood food pantry distribution site. You may also request personal supplies and diapers.
PANTRY LOCATION. We ask that you use the pantry site that is geographically located in the neighborhood of your primary residence, even if you are currently not living there. To locate the pantry site in your home neighborhood, please call the MovetheFood main office, 515-277-6969.
NO INCOME REQUIREMENTS. There are no income requirements to be served at a MovetheFood food pantry site.
IDENTIFICATION. Upon arriving at your neighborhood pantry site, we ask that you provide a photo ID for head of household and other identification for every member of the family. A food box will be prepared according to your household size. We also ask that you provide a current piece of mail that includes your name and address of your primary residence.
WHAT IS IN A TYPICAL FOOD BOX? Our food pantry network is health-based. We provide an assortment of 100% juice, cereal, soup, beans, corn, peaches, pears, pasta, rice, macaroni and cheese, tuna, peanut butter, beans, bread, milk, and fresh fruits and vegetables. We do have three ‘choice’ pantries available. Please see our Food Pantry Locations list for location.
