The Urbandale Food Pantry Mission
The Urbandale Food Pantry is a collaborative community effort to reach out to our neighbors to provide food assistance with dignity and compassion. Since the Pantry opened in 2008, the average number of individuals served per month has steadily grown. Since we began serving residents throughout Polk County in 2016, we have doubled the amount of clients we serve each month. We are proud of the work we’re able to do through the Urbandale Food Pantry.
