Welcome to River Bend Foodbank!


THANK YOU!

The Open House ribbon cutting

Thank you so much to all who attended our open house! We had a wonderful time meeting faces both old and new. Every single one of you is a vital part in the fight to end hunger and we wouldn't be celebrating this milestone without your support.

The Great American Milk Drive

Working in garden

River Bend Foodbank is always in need of items, but one that is rarely donated is milk. If you donate to The Great American Milk Drive the Foodbank receives milk coupons to give to families in our service area. To donate, please visit https://milklife.com/give.

River Bend Foodbank has a garden!

Working in garden

Thanks to our "Garden Club" volunteers for braving the heat and bugs to help us plant, to our gardener Bob Jurgensen for his time and services tilling the soil, and to the Corn Crib Nursery, Teske Pet & Garden, and Wallaces Garden Center for your generous donations. The produce grown in the garden, which includes tomatoes, peppers, and cucumbers, will be given to our agencies to distribute to their clients. If you are interested in joining our "Garden Club" (no expertise required!), please give us a call at (563) 345-9490

The Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation award River Bend Foodbank with a $300,000 grant!



River Bend Foodbank recently received a grant in the amount of $300,000 for the capital campaign from The Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation, Inc. in Owings Mills, Maryland. We are deeply grateful for this grant and for all of the support The Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation gives to the cause of hunger in America. The Foodbank will name its new volunteer area after The Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation.
