Charles City Mobile Food Pantry Has New Location for 2023
The Charles City Mobile Food Pantry has a new home for 2023.
Hosted by the Northeast Iowa Food Bank out of Waterloo, Jen Burton says the Charles City pantry is available on the first Wednesdays of the month at the Floyd County Fairgrounds. However, she notes there are some changes in their distribution system.
In January, eligible clients came into the Youth Enrichment Center (YEC), but with the recent cold weather, they will go back to a drive-thru style similar to that of 2022. Serving will be from 5:30 to 6:30 pm Wednesdays with those picking up food asked to enter through the east entrance gate off Highway 14. There will be volunteers helping everyone park in a first come, first serve way.
Burton adds that all people wishing to pick up food will be able to register from your car. If they are new to the program, eligibility forms will be available to complete from your vehicle.
All volunteers are to park on the west side of the YEC. More volunteers are needed. If you’d like to help, contact Burton at 641-220-1769
