2021 Food Drive

United Way's annual LIVE UNITED Food Drive is going hybrid!


APRIL 26 - MAY 6


Donations will go to our county food pantries, giving them maximum flexibility to purchase needed items as they run low. As many of our food pantries are partners of the Food Bank of Iowa, they are able to purchase food and other necessities at the "shared maintenance" cost (free for perishable items and $0-$.16 per pound for non-perishables). 


Want to donate cash?

Pantries that partner with the Food Bank of Iowa can purchase food at the cost of 0-16¢ per pound, much cheaper than your dollar would go at the grocery store!


Want to donate physical items?

Some high-demand items (like paper products) aren't in stock at the food bank, and the pantry needs them on their shelves for local families!
