About Us

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.

Helping The Hungry: Discover Who We Are

The Urbandale Food Pantry is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt, non-profit organization. We partner with the Des Moines Area Religious Council (DMARC), Hunger Free Polk County, the Urbandale Ministerial Alliance, local churches, civic organizations, city and county officials, and area residents to provide supplemental food for those with need in Polk County.


Volunteers are what make our world go round and truly are a gift. With over 100 dedicated and steadfast volunteers currently supporting the pantry we are constantly on the lookout to add to our amazing team of volunteers.
