Welcome to River Bend Foodbank!

September is Hunger Action Month

During the month of September, you can bring awareness of the 1 in 8 adults and 1 in 5 children who do not have enough to eat in our 22 counties. You can take action in a variety of ways. Thursday, September 8th is Hunger Action Day. There will be several events going on this day for you to get involved in at River Bend Foodbank.

A Mobile Food Pantry will be held at the East Moline UAW Hall (630 19th St.). Volunteers are needed from 10a.m.12p.m. to set up, hand out food, and tear down. If you are interested, please email Belinda at bmielenhausen@riverbendfoodbank.org

Volunteers will be needed at River Bend Foodbank on September 8th to sort food, back backpacks, and perform a variety of other duties. If you are interested, please email Belinda at bmielenhausen@riverbendfoodbank.org

Wine & Dine for a Cause will be held at the JBar Holiday Inn and Conference Center located at 4215 Elmore Avenue. This fundraising event will include a four-course meal paired with four different styles of wine. Tickets are $85 per person or $600 for a table of 8. Please email Jennifer at jschroder@riverbendfoodbank.org to make your reservation.


Fiscal Year 2016 Recap

Our fiscal year is now July 1-June 30, completing a short fiscal year 2016. We distributed 7.3 million meals in 2014, at which time we set a goal of tripling that number over 10 years, and in fiscal year 2016 we distributed 10.6 million meals, a 43% increase.

Over the past few months we have upgraded every computer system that we have. Food items are now automatically reserved for our partner agencies the moment they place orders, increasing inventory accuracy and more than doubling our order fulfillment rate. A new volunteer system was also recently just launched which will make it easier to sign up for volunteer opportunities that match your areas of interest.
