Hungry families in the Siouxland area are so lucky to have help from our compassionate friends that partner with the Food Bank of Siouxland!
October of 2013 was the single biggest month in our history with 219,000 pounds distributed … until we finished November at 235,000 pounds. In fact, with the first four months of a new fiscal year closed and calculated, we can say those four months are all in the top five in our history, and have put us on track to distribute 2.4 million pounds in FY 2014.
It is our mission to serve as many individuals in the Siouxland community as possible. We know that too many families are one medical problem from food insecurity – meaning they don’t know where the next meal will come from. Those families are one unexpected car repair bill from fear and hunger. They are a salary cut away from not being able to balance their budgets. They are a job loss away from being financially independent to financially broken.
