In 2021 The Urbandale Food Pantry rescued over 350,000 pounds of food that otherwise would have discarded
Families from 67 different zip codes received services from the Urbandale Food Pantry
On average the pantry welcomes roughly 1,500 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 500 individuals a month are seniors.
To better serve our families in need the Urbandale Food Pantry is committed to sourcing, funding, and purchasing dairy, meat, and personal care items so families have consistent, guaranteed access to these vital necessities.
The Urbandale Food Pantry works hard to establish partnerships with local businesses to help fuel funding for operations and nourish our community.
