The First Presbyterian Church of Lake Park has partnered with The Food Bank of Iowa to bring their Mobile Pantry to the church on the first Thursday of every other month starting October 6th. The pantry will be open from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. and is targeted for families who make 185% of the federal poverty level or less.

A mobile pantry is a farmer’s market style distribution targeted toward counties with a need for additional pantry service. Mobile pantries provide an additional strategy toward bridging the food assistance gap, specifically in rural counties in our service area, by providing an additional access point for food.

The mobile pantry program has two key focus areas:

  • The primary focus is to distribute fresh produce, protein, and non-perishable items to counties in our service area where pantry access does not exist or resources are very limited – particularly to our more rural areas.
  • Second is to spotlight communities where hunger needs are not being met to build awareness of the issue and hopefully lead to more permanent solutions.

Upcoming dates for the pantry are:

  • October 5, 2017
  • December 7, 2017
  • February 1, 2018
  • April 5, 2018

The Food Bank of Iowa is a private, charitable, not-for-profit organization committed to our mission of alleviating hunger through food distribution, partnership and education.

For more information, you can contact The Food Bank of Iowa at 515-564-0330 or visit their website at
