Food rescue  

In 2023 The Urbandale Food Pantry rescued over 515,000 pounds of food that otherwise would have discarded

Families served  

On average the pantry welcomes roughly 1,800 families to the pantry each month, and an additional 200 individuals with our food rescue room on a daily basis


Advocacy efforts are always at the forefront of our mind in trying to shift a narrative on who and why people access food. Did you know that 1 in 3 individuals we serve are under the age of 18 and over 650 for individuals a month are seniors.
